Public Meeting Concerning a Proposed Zoning By-law Amendment – Cobourg

In Local

(Issued April 3, 2018 at 9 a.m. EST) – The Town of Cobourg has received a complete application for an amendment to the Comprehensive Zoning By-law (By-law #85-2003) by RFA Planning Consultant on behalf of 1141897 Ontario Ltd. (Stalwood Homes) under Section 34 of the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990 c.P. 13, as amended and will hold a Public Meeting on Monday, May 14, 2018 at 6 p.m. in the Council Chambers, Victoria Hall, 55 King Street West, Cobourg, to consider the proposed Zoning By-law Amendment under Section 34 of the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990 c.P. 13, as amended.

The purpose of the application is to amend the Zoning By-law to change the lot coverage regulations for specific lands within Phases 3 & 4 of East Village Subdivision (See Key Map below). The Subject Lands are designated as “Residential Area” in the Town of Cobourg Official Plan (2017), and zoned “Residential Four Exception Nineteen (R4-19) Zone” in the Comprehensive Zoning By-law No. 85-2003. Currently, the R4-19 Zone permits a maximum lot coverage of 45% for the main building on a lot, and 50% lot coverage for all buildings and structures on a lot. The proposal is to change the zone category of the areas of land within Phases 3 and 4 of the East Village Subdivision, zoned R4-19 Zone, in order to increase the maximum permitted percentage lot coverage for all buildings and structures on a lot to 55%.

If a person or public body does not make oral submissions at the public meeting or make written submissions to Cobourg Municipal Council, c/o Brent Larmer, Municipal Clerk, Town of Cobourg, Victoria Hall, 55 King Street West, Cobourg, K9A 2M2 (, before the proposed amendment is approved or refused, the person or public body is not entitled to appeal the decision of Cobourg Municipal Council to the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal and may not be added as a party to the hearing of an appeal before the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal unless, in the opinion of the Tribunal, there are reasonable grounds to do so.
