Mr. Harding summarized Report COA2019-052, to reduce the minimum side yard setback for an accessory building in order to permit the construction of a detached garage.
The Committee questioned Rationale 2, fourth paragraph “Condition 2 is recommended to ensure continued compliance…”. Staff replied that all three accessory buildings need to be removed before the issuance of the building permit for the new garage to comply with the maximum accessory building lot coverage requirement. Staff further explained that the two buildings identified in proposed Condition 2(a) would need to be removed anyway as they are proposed upon the footprint of the new garage.
The Committee also questioned whether a variance was needed for the proposed building height. Staff replied that a variance for height was not required, as the building was below the permitted 5 metre height maximum.
The applicant, Mr. Titterton, was present but did not wish to speak.
No further questions were posed from the Committee or other persons.
