0 Clemes Drive - Zoning Amendment Application Update


Community Consultation Meeting


On Wednesday, February 5th, 2014 a Community Consultation Meeting will take place at the Royal Canadian Legion (45 Lawson Road) from 7pm to 9pm to review the proposed application at 0 Clemes Drive.( corner of Clemes Dr. and Centennial Rd.)



A Preliminary Report on the application was issued by the Community Planning, Scarborough District office on October 16th, 2013.  The report states that the application proposes to amend the Centennial Community Zoning By-law No. 12077 to rezone the lands from the Agricultural Uses zone (which does not permit residential uses) to a Single-Family Residential zone to permit residential uses with the proposed severance of the lands into seven lots for new single-family detached dwellings (see Concept Site Plan below).



Issues to be Resolved

Some of the issues that were highlighted in the report, and that may be discussed during the question and comment period, included the following:

 appropriateness and compatibility of the number and size of the proposed lots;

 appropriateness of the proposed built form and massing;

 building setbacks from the staked top-of-bank and Ravine By-law limit;

 development impacts on, and protection and enhancement of, the adjacent Natural Heritage System;

 location and siting of the dwellings on the lots to be created, including separation distances and buffering between the proposed dwellings and the abutting existing homes; and

 location and width of proposed driveways as it relates to streetscape and tree protection and retention.
