Take Notice that the Corporation of the County of Peterborough has received Application No. 15T-21003 for approval of a Plan of Subdivision in the Township of Cavan Monaghan under Section 51 of the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, as amended. The Township received an associated Zoning By-law Amendment Application (File No. ZBA-07-21) under Section 34 of the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, as amended.

The Plan of Subdivision and Zoning By-law Amendment Applications apply to lands located in part of Lot 23, Concession 11 of the Cavan Ward. The Key Map below indicates the location of the lands subject to the above-noted Applications.

The purpose of this Notice is to inform the public of the nature of the Applications, invite public input, advise how to provide comments on the Applications, and to advise the public of future notification and appeal rights. Please note that the County of Peterborough is the approval authority for the Plan of Subdivision and the Council of the Township of Cavan Monaghan is the approval authority for the Zoning By-law Amendment.

Purpose and Effect of the Applications

The Subdivision Application proposes a 24 lot residential subdivision for single detached dwellings on private services (i.e. well and septic), a stormwater management block (Block 26), two (2) wetland blocks (Blocks 25 and 29), and one (1) road transfer block (Block 27). The lots will be accessed from proposed Streets ‘A’, ‘B’ and ‘C’. Block 28 will provide the connection between Ashley Crescent and Street ‘C’.

The Plan of Subdivision and Zoning By-law Amendment applications include an area of land approximately 10.9 hectares (26.9 acres) in size.

The site of the proposed subdivision is currently zoned Future Development (FD) in the Township of Cavan Monaghan Zoning By-law No. 2018-58, as amended. The zoning by-law amendment will rezone the subject lands from the Future Development (FD) Zone to the Hamlet Residential (HR) Zone, the Hamlet Residential Exception Nineteen (HR-19) Zone, the Open Space Exception Three (OS-3) Zone, the Natural Core (NC) Zone and the Natural Core Exception Two (NC-2) Zone to facilitate the development of the plan of subdivision.

The HR Zone permits single and semi-detached residential uses. The HR-19 Zone permits all of the uses of the HR Zone and contains a clause to permit construction to a maximum of 241.9 metres above sea level. This exemption is required to address the Airport Obstacle Limit. The NC Zone permits primarily conservation uses. In the NC-2 Zone, permitted uses are limited to conservation uses excepting buildings, structures and swimming pools. In the OS-3 Zone, permitted uses are limited to a stormwater management facility. No buildings or structures, except essential structural works for flood control and/or erosion or sediment control are permitted in the OS-3 Zone.

In support of the Applications, the following documents/studies were submitted:

  • Draft Plan of Subdivision prepared by M.J. Davenport & Associates Ltd., dated March 2021 and revised January 6, 2022;
