LOCATION: 44 Beech Street West, Aylmer
ROLL NO: 3411-030-0003-3900
Purpose and Effect of Application A08-23
The subject lands are located within the Employment land use designation of the Town of Aylmer Official Plan. The subject lands are also zoned Light Industrial (M1) in the Town of Aylmer Comprehensive Zoning By-law No. 57-99. There are legally established and constructed semi-detached dwellings on the lands. The owners/applicants are proposing to add one (1) additional residential unit in the basement in each semi-detached dwelling, to create a total of two (2) additional residential units on the lands. The M1 Zone does not permit the establishment of new residential uses. Section 45(2)(ii) of the Ontario Planning Act grants the Committee of Adjustment the ability to consider a planning application for the use of lands, buildings or structures for a purpose that, in the opinion of the committee, is similar to the purpose for which it was used on the day the by-law was passed.
Location and Description of Subject Land
The subject lands are legally described as East Part of Lot 10 Beech S/S John W/S, Plan 164 (Town of Aylmer), and is known municipally as 44 Beech Street West, Aylmer. The location and proposed development are shown on the Key Map (outlined in yellow) and sketch attached to this notice.
