Planning applications received by the City in the Charlesworth neighbourhood.

5125 4 Avenue SW and 5240 Ellerslie Road SW

This planning application (map) proposes to rezone a portion of land in the Charlesworth neighbourhood located south of 4 Avenue SW and west of 50 Street SW. 

Current Zoning

The site is currently zoned Natural Areas Protection Zone (NA), and Direct Development Control Provision (DC1). This current zoning allows for retention of a tree stand and development of a pedestrian-friendly community commercial area that includes commercial, residential, office, entertainment, and institutional uses. 

The existing natural tree stand on the north part of the site is no longer sustainable, leading to the proposed rezoning.

Proposed Rezoning

The proposed rezoning to Public Utility Zone (PU)  and Direct Development Control Provision (DC1)  will allow for the development of a fire station and minor changes to the existing pedestrian-friendly community commercial area. The rezoning will also adjust site design regulations and pedestrian circulation.

Plan Amendments

This application includes an amendment to the Charlesworth Neighbourhood Structure Plan (NSP), and the Southeast Area Structure Plan (ASP) to reflect the proposed rezoning. The proposed amendment will remove the existing tree stand and incorporate the development of a fire station and expand the community commercial area.

Draft Direct Development Control Provision (DC1)
