A zoning by-law amendment and subdivision plan revision for 6015, 6021 and 6041 Fernbank Road, submitted by Tartan Land Consultants, will come before the City of Ottawa Planning Committee on Thursday, February 10. The proposed development had previously been approved in December 2014 to allow a 546 unit subdivision with 164 single-detached homes and 282 semi-detached homes slated to be built between Fernbank Road and Kemp Woodland. The location is within the Fernbank Community Design Plan.
Tartan wants to revise the approved plan to increase the total number of houses to 636 that would include 262 townhouses, 234 single-detached homes and 140 semi-detached homes. Single and semi-detached homes would be decreased in number to allow for the 262 townhouses. The park, pathway and road locations will remain the same.
Tartan is proposing to rezone a portion of the land from the existing Residential Third Density Subzone Z, Exception 2238 (R3Z ) to Residential Third Density Subzone Z with no exception. Exception 2238 only allows for single-detached and semi-detached units, so by removing the exception it will allow for the proposed townhomes in that portion of the land on the east side of the development.
In May of 2021, Councillor Gower held a community information session on the proposed development. You can watch the meeting here. To read the proposed zoning by-law amendment and subdivision plan click on this link. The original application and documents for # D02-02-21-0012 can be read here.
