Mr. Adebayo summarized Report COA2019-051 on behalf of Mr. Harding, to request relief in order to permit the raising of a dwelling to add a crawlspace and to add a deck to the north side of the dwelling. The application was the result of a building enforcement matter. Comments were received from Engineering and Corporate Assets with no concerns. Building Division had no concerns but noted the proposal is an enforcement file as it was built without permit. The Building Division-Part 8 Sewage Systems advised that the owners will be applying to install a new on-site sewage disposal system. As no application has yet been filed, a condition was requested. Kawartha Region Conservation Authority had no concerns. A permit for the works has been issued.
Ms. Murchison, Chief Building Official responded to a Committee question stating it was built without a permit. A site visit by the building inspector in November 2018 identified that a minor variance was required but the property owner went ahead and built and the minor variance application was filed in August 2019.
The applicant, Mr. Tom deBoer was present and spoke to the Committee. He advised that he was retained after the fact and that his client has worked with staff regarding outstanding permits.
No further questions were posed from the Committee of other persons.
