Residential parking and driveways city wide – City of Kingston – D35-004-2019

Applications for Official Plan amendment and Zoning Bylaw amendment to provide additional opportunities for off-street parking in residential areas, with limitations, while at the same time balance the need for maintaining the streetscape and neighbourhood character. Amendments are also proposed to regulate the temporary parking and storage of recreational vehicles, watercraft and trailers in residential zones on a seasonal basis.

2285 & 2311 Battersea Rd. – BPE Development Inc. – D35-003-2019

Applications for Official Plan amendment and Zoning Bylaw amendment to allow the redevelopment of three separately conveyable parcels located at the northwest corner of the Unity Road and Battersea Road intersection. The lands subject to the proposed development are addressed municipally as 2285 Battersea Road, 2311 Battersea Rd. and a landlocked parcel north of these parcels. Cumulatively, the total land area is approximately 13.7 hectares with approximately 295 metres of road frontage on Battersea Road and approximately 115 metres of road frontage on Unity Road. The applicant is proposing to adaptively reuse the existing single-detached dwelling and redevelop the subject lands to accommodate a 27-suite boutique inn, spa, gift shop, restaurant, corporate event venue and 40 rental cabins distributed across the lands. The site is to include agricultural land, vineyards, gardens, a fruit and vegetable sand, craft brewery and craft winery.

Second residential units city wide – City of Kingston – D35-003-2018

Applications for Official Plan amendment and Zoning Bylaw amendment to apply to second residential units located within a principal dwelling or within an accessory structure that occupies the same lot as principal dwelling. The amendments are intended to broaden permissions related to second residential units, save and except for those areas subject to servicing constraints. The Zoning Bylaw amendment will also remove a provision in Zoning Bylaw 8499 that prohibits habitation space or dwelling units in a cellar. In addition, the Official Plan amendment will recognize that the identified servicing constraints also apply to new residential units that are subject to a Planning Act application.
