Agent: Rosemarie Humphries, Humphries Planning Group Inc.

File Numbers: Z-2021-08 & SPD-2021-49

Staff Report: The staff report will be available at www.king.ca on the Thursday prior to the meeting date.


The proposed Zoning By-law Amendment application and Site Plan Development application were submitted by Townwood Homes on behalf of the owner. The applications concern a property located on the east side of Keele Street, north of King Road in the Village of King City. The subject property is approximately 1006.1 square metres and has frontage on both Keele Street and Dennison Street. The property currently contains one (1) single detached dwelling. The proposal is to permit the redevelopment of the lands to permit the construction of one (1) townhouse block consisting of five (5) townhouse dwelling units, each with individual driveways with accesses onto Dennison Street.


What Is The Proposed Amendment?

The subject property is designated Mixed Use in the Township’s new Official Plan, “Our King”. The subject property is designated Existing Low Density Residential Area as per the King City Community Plan. The lands are zoned Residential – Single Detached “C” (R1C).


The Zoning By-law Amendment Application proposes to re-zone the subject property to “Residential Townhouse – With Exceptions (R3-XX)” to implement site-specific zone standards that permit the development of the townhouse dwelling units. The application proposes to establish site-specific zone standards for lot area, setbacks, lot coverage, minimum pervious surface areas, and to permit bicycle parking spaces to encroach into a private garage parking space.


Any person may attend the virtual public meeting and/or make written or verbal representation either in support of or in opposition to the proposed Zoning By-law Amendment. Written comments will become part of the public record.
