PUBLIC NOTICE - DEVELOPMENT VARIANCE PERMIT
(560 SORIEL ROAD)
Public Notice is hereby given that the City Council intends to consider whether to issue a Development Variance Permit during the regular meeting of Council to be held Monday, December 18, 2023, at 1 PM in the Forum at the Parksville Civic and Technology Centre, 100 Jensen Avenue East, Parksville, BC.
The general intent of the Development Variance Permit, if approved, is to facilitate the conversion of an existing accessory building into an accessory carriage house for residential purposes. The existing accessory building complies with the interior and rear lot-line setback requirements for a non-residential accessory building, but not as an accessory carriage house as is being proposed.
Specifically, the purpose of the Development Variance Permit application is to relax Section 202.3 of "City of Parksville Zoning and Development Bylaw, 1994, No. 2000" by reducing the minimum building setback requirement for an accessory carriage house from the west interior (side) lot line from 3.0 m to 1.1 m (approximately 9.8 ft. to 3.6 ft.) and from the rear lot line from 3.0 m to 1.81 m (approximately 9.8 ft. to 5.9 ft.). This is intended to allow the existing building in its current location to be used as an accessory carriage house.
The Development Variance Permit, if approved, will apply to the subject property at 560 Soriel Road [Lot 2, District Lot 70, Nanoose District, Plan VIP77502] as shown shaded on the map below:
