Request for Exemption from Part-Lot Control - Lyndsborough
Development Corporation/Papko Electric Co. Ltd.,
280 Dalesford Road
The Etobicoke Community Council recommends the adoption of the following report (January 21, 1998) from the Commissioner of Urban Development, Etobicoke:
Request for Exemption from Part-Lot Control for the development of an 11-unit freehold townhouse development.
Source of Funds:
There are no funding sources or financial implications.
It is recommended that:
(1) the request for exemption from Part-Lot Control by Lyndsborough Development Corporation/Papko Electric Co. Ltd., for an 11-unit freehold townhouse development at 280 Dalesford Road be approved, and that the necessary by-law be prepared by the appropriate staff/authority to be forwarded to Toronto City Council; and.
(2) prior to the adoption of the exempting by-law by Toronto City Council, any outstanding matters related to the 11-unit freehold townhouse development be resolved to the satisfaction of the Works Department, Urban Development and City Solicitor.
On November 5, 1997, the Commissioner of Urban Development granted Site Plan Control Approval (Delegated) for the development of 11 freehold townhouse units on the north side of Dalesford Road, west of Grand Avenue (Exhibit No. 2), subject to a number of conditions. The applicants have applied for building permits (BPA B85480 ) and are proceeding to finalize the conditions to approval. On October 24, 1997, Lyndsborough Development Corporation submitted a request to the Urban Development Department for exemption from part-lot control for the townhouse project.
Exhibit Nos. 1, 2 and 3 are photo-reductions of the location map, site plan and reference plan, respectively. The 11-unit townhouse development will be freehold townhouses, individually serviced and accessed from Dalesford Road, a public street.
The approval of a by-law to lift part-lot control has been requested in order that the approved townhouse project may be developed and marketed with a freehold style of ownership.
The application has been reviewed with the Fire Department, Realty Services, Building Standards, Parks and Recreations Services, Works Department, and the Solicitor for Etobicoke. Realty Services, Fire Department, Traffic and Transportation Planning Section of the Works Department, and Parks and Recreation Services have no objection to the proposal. Private deed restrictions for all backyard drainage swales, as well as servicing, easement and maintenance agreements are to be provided to the satisfaction of the Works Department and the City Solicitor.
A plan of subdivision is not necessary for the orderly development of the 11-unit townhouse development given that servicing matters are being addressed through servicing agreements. Subject to the outstanding matters regarding the applicable agreements being addressed, and favourable comments being received from the circulated agencies before the part-lot control by-law is forwarded for approval and registration, the requested exemption is considered appropriate.
