Chapter 900 Site Specific Exceptions

900.1 General

900.1.10 Interpretation

(1)Contents of Chapter 900 Site Specific Exceptions
Chapter 900 Site Specific Exceptions are provisions pertaining to lands, or a portion thereof that have an exception number shown as an "x" with a numeral in the zone label on the Zoning By-law Map. The chapter 900 site specific exceptions are read as follows:
(A)Chapter 900 Site Specific Exceptions consist of one or more of the following:
(i)Site Specific Provisions;
(ii)a Prevailing By-law or By-laws; or
(iii)a Prevailing Section or Sections.
(B)"Site Specific Provisions" are the provisions set out in text in Sections 900.2 to 900.50 inclusive which pertain to the property and which are identified as "Site Specific Provisions" in those Sections. A "Prevailing By-law" or a "Prevailing Section" is not a Site Specific Provision.
(C)"Prevailing By-laws" are the by-laws, as amended, listed in Sections 900.2 to 900.50 inclusive and identified as such in those Sections.
(D)"Prevailing Sections" are the sections, as amended, of the Former General Zoning By-laws listed in Sections 900.2 to 900.50 inclusive and identified as such in those Sections.
(2)Effect of a Chapter 900 Site Specific Exception
If there is a Chapter 900 Site Specific Exception, all of the regulations of this By-law, including the Chapter 900 Site Specific Exception, apply.
(3)Effect of a Site Specific Provision in Chapter 900 Site Specific Exceptions
The regulations of a Site Specific Provision in Chapter 900 Site Specific Exceptions govern over any inconsistent regulations in Chapters 5 to 800 inclusive of this By-law.
(4)Effect of a Prevailing By-law or Prevailing Section listed in Chapter 900 Site Specific Exceptions
The effect of a Prevailing By-law or Prevailing Section listed in Chapter 900 Site Specific Exceptions is as follows:
(A)Despite regulation 900.1.10(2), none of the regulations of Chapters 5 to 800 inclusive of this By-law that are inconsistent with the regulations of a Prevailing By-law or Prevailing Section apply to prevent:
(i)the erection or use of a building or structure or any permitted addition or enlargement; or
(ii)the use of land, in compliance with the provisions of a Prevailing By-law or a Prevailing Section, provided all the specific requirements of the Prevailing By-law or Prevailing Section are complied with.
(B)All applicable regulations of this By-law apply to:
(i)any new buildings or structures and additions or enlargements; and
(ii)any use of land, not permitted by the Prevailing By-law or Prevailing Section.
(C)Where this By-law applies to lands pursuant to regulation 1.5.7(1):
(i)the provisions and the definitions of the Former General Zoning By-laws continue to apply only to the extent necessary to interpret and support the Prevailing By-laws or Prevailing Sections;
(ii)the provisions of the Former General Zoning By-laws do not have priority over this By-law, except to the extent needed in sub-section (i); and
(iii)despite any language in a Prevailing By-law or a Prevailing Section which indicates that the provisions of the Former General Zoning By-laws otherwise continue to apply, the application of the Former General Zoning By-laws is limited by sub-sections (i) and (ii).
