Three Stittsville properties on the agenda at Committee of Adjustment

The City of Ottawa’s Committee of Adjustment will decide on three Stittsville applications on July 20.

5897 FERNBANK

The owner, Farmhouse Investments Inc., wants to subdivide the land into two separate parcels: “In order to do this, the Owner requires the Consent of the Committee for a Conveyance. The land to be severed is shown on a Draft 4R-Plan filed with the application, will have frontage of 43.25 metres on Fernbank Road to an irregular depth of 102.92 metres and will contain a lot area of 4560 square metres. This parcel contains the existing dwelling known municipally as 5897 Fernbank Road. The land to be retained is also shown on the Plan filed with the application, will have frontage of 38.33 metres on Fernbank Road to an irregular depth of 102.94 metres and will contain a lot area of 15,866 square metres. This parcel is vacant and will be known municipally as 5903 Fernbank Road and is part of the Fernbank Community Plan for future development.” More info…

That “existing dwelling” is also known as Flewellyn-Jones House, which recently was designated under the Ontario Heritage Act. The owners are planning to turn it into a PTSD wellness centre.


30 JOHNWOODS

The owner, real estate agent Glendon Moore, wants to subdivide the property into two separate parcels of land to create a new lot for future development. The house currently facing Johnwoods would make up one piece of land, and a slightly smaller parcel would front front Hartin Street.

“The existing detached dwelling known municipally as 30 Johnwoods Street is to remain on the other parcel. In order to do this, the Owner requires the Consent of the Committee for Conveyances.  The property is shown as Parts 1 and 2 on a Draft 4R-Plan filed with the applications and the separate parcels will be as follows:
Applications for 30 JohnwoodsApproval of these applications will have the effect of creating a parcel of land for the existing dwelling which will not be in conformity with the requirements of the Zoning Bylaw and therefore a Minor Variance Application (D08-02-16/A-00190) has been filed and will be heard concurrently with these applications.”

“In order to proceed, the Owner requires the Authority of the Committee for a Minor Variance from the Zoning By-law to permit a reduced rear yard setback of 2.8 metres whereas the By-law requires a minimum rear yard setback of 9 metres. It should be noted that, for By-law purposes, the frontage on Hartin Street is deemed to be the front lot line for this property.” More info…


325 HALIBURTON, 200, 201 ROVER, 100 SHINNY
(Fernbank / Robert Grant area)

Abbott-Fernbank Holdings Inc. owns the property, and proposes “to construct four detached dwellings on Lots 76, 95, 96 and 115, with one dwelling on each lot. The proposed dwellings on these lots will not be located in conformity with the requirements of the Zoning By-law, as shown on plans filed with the Committee. In order to proceed, the Owner requires the Authority of the Committee for Minor Variances from the Zoning By-law. More info…

(Perhaps as notable as the application are the new street names: Shinny Avenue, Slapshot Way and Rover Street.)

Hartin Street will be closed from Hazeldean Road to Loreka Court because of construction from Monday, July 4 to Tuesday July 5.
The contractor will be providing written notice to all residents and business 72 hours prior to the closure. Access to adjacent dwellings as well as pedestrian access will be maintained at all times in order to account for emergency vehicle access.

The contractor, Primrose Cartage & Excavating Ltd. will be connecting new services at 5943 Hazeldean Road. The predicted impact to traffic will be low.

If you live in the area, please remember to plan your route on these days. If you require any additional information, please contact me at Shad.Qadri@ottawa.ca.

Oops! We tore down your heritage farmhouse

(ABOVE: McCurdy House, 1899. “Farms & Families” by the Stittsville Women’s Institute, Tweedsmuir History Committee.)

“Misunderstanding” was a big hit for the band Genesis in early 1980s. Stittsville was also hit by a misunderstanding in 1985 when a 19th century stone house was “accidentally” knocked down.

In February 1985, a backhoe operator mistakenly tore down the 153-year-old McCurdy house, instead of a shed. Continue reading

The City has received a site plan application to build a gas station on the vacant lot at the corner of Hazeldean and Hartin, at 5943 Hazeldean Road.  The development would include a corner store, car wash, and other commercial buildings.

Architectural drawings show an Ultramar gas station, along with a Country Style donut shop and Ultramar Corner Store, similar to the gas station at the corner of Huntmar and Palladium.  (The planning documents also reference a Quickie convenience store.)
