Approved Garneau Planning Applications

8715 110 Street NW

Revisions have been made to an ongoing application to rezone 8715 110 Street NW.

The application now proposes to  rezone the property (map) from the Small-Scale Infill Development Zone (RF3) to a Site-Specific Development Control Provision (DC2). This rezoning application had initially proposed the Urban Character Row Housing Zone (UCRH).

At a Public Hearing on May 14, 2021, City Council passed the following motion:

“That Bylaw 19592 and Charter Bylaw 19593 be referred back to Administration to have increased interior side and rear setbacks similar to the RF3 zone through Direct Control zoning, and return to the September 8, 2021, City Council Public Hearing.”

The proposed DC2 Provision would allow for a residential building with up to 3 principal dwellings and a height of 12.0 metres. With respect to the above motion, the proposed setbacks are compared with the previously proposed UCRH Zone and the current RF3 Zone in  this comparison table .
