The land that are the subject of the rezoning application are legally described as: LOT B DISTRICT LOT 8073 GROUP 1 NEW WESTMINSTER DISTRICT PLAN EPP125575 and STRATA LOT 1 to 23 DISTRICT LOT 8073 GROUP 1 NEW WESTMINSTER DISTRICT STRATA PLAN EPS7860, as shown on the map attached to this notice.
This rezoning application seeks to add density to Lot 2B to allow one extra storey and additional employee housing dwelling units. Zoning Amendment Bylaw (Cheakamus Crossing Phase 2 RM-CD2 Zone) No. 2390, 2023 has been prepared to provide for the proposed increase in dwelling units and revised development concept. The bylaw proposes to:
- Increase the permitted building height;
- Increase the allowable gross floor area (GFA) and floor space ratio (FSR);
- Reduce the south side setback by one metre and the front setback by 2.2 metres for Lot 2B;
- Reduce the required parking to a minimum of one stall per dwelling unit and the required number of visitor parking spaces to four for Lot 2B.
The bylaw proposes to reduce the GFA on Lot 1 and Lot 6 by the amount that is added to Lot 2B, so that the overall density of the Phase 2 lands remains unchanged. The revised density for Lot 1 reflects the actual built GFA of the two buildings. The bylaw also proposes to remove the prohibition on tandem parking for Lot 4, and to update the key plan associated with the RM-CD2 zone by revising the labelling of the development lots to reference Lot 1 through 6, including the subdivision of Lot 2.
