The areas below are the areas in King City that are being discussed. This conversation is for newer development only, not for all homes in King City. Established subdivisions are not being changed.
Essentially the new developments in King City would be considered legal non-conforming because By-law 2017-66 has lapsed on June 26, 2020. The new developments were permitted under site-specific provisions which are now being consolidated into this new By-law being proposed. This By-law will ensure that these areas will have a specific policy around lot coverage that is consistent with the development they are in. If not the governing By-law would mean the majority of residential homes are legal non-conforming. Staff mention in the report that without this By-law the following would occur. Please see below.
This By-law will ensure that the new areas in King City will be recognized for their higher coverage and allow them to stay within the conformity of the original site-specific plan that was passed by Council when they went through the planning phase. This will allow residents to apply for additions, secondary structures, or other permits without going through the Minor Variance process.
