Because of COVID-19 considerations, the temporary location for committee meetings is at the K.C. Irving Regional Centre, in the Paul Ouellette Room.

PUBLIC NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Planning Advisory Committee will be considering the following applications at its next regular meeting:

548 King Avenue: Groupe Roy Consultants Ltée has made an application to install a shipping container 9’ 6” x 40’ (380 square feet) on their property located at 548 King avenue. The container will be used for storage of material and equipment.

The City of Bathurst Zoning by-Law section 3.5.4 states that: 

Architectural Standards 

1) No building or structure may be placed, erected or altered, and the Advisory Committee shall not approve plans therefore, if, in the opinion of the Advisory Committee;

a) the architectural design of the proposed building or structure is not related to the physical features, to the aspects and prospects of its site and its surroundings, and to orientation and climatic conditions;

b) the external appearance of the proposed building or structure is not a good expression of structure, materials of construction and the purposes for which the building is to be used;

c) the form, proportions, colouring, use of materials, or sitting of the proposed building or structure fails to bear a complementary relationship to neighbouring buildings and to civic qualities of the locality in which the building or structure is to be placed, erected or altered;

d) the proposed building or structure involves the use of false fronts, false works, false roofs or materials in superficial imitation of other materials;

e) the appearance of the proposed building or structure is likely to be below the general standard prevailing or intended to prevail in the zone. 

Because the proposed structure is not considered a standard building, the Planning Advisory Committee must approve the proposed structure to be used as an accessory building for storage. 

175 Bayshore Drive: Mr. Wayne Carroll has made an application to build a detached garage of 24 feet by 30 feet (720 square feet) on his property. There are presently two accessory buildings on the property. The total square area of the existing accessory buildings is approximately 214 square feet. The total square area of the accessory buildings with the proposed garage will be 934 square feet. The Zoning By-Law Section 3.4.5 states that:

“Accessory Buildings, Structures or Uses  

(1) Where in this By-Law accessory buildings are permitted no more than two accessory buildings may be built, placed, or erected on a property unless otherwise approved by the Planning Advisory Committee”.

Anyone wishing to make a presentation before the Committee in regards to this application is invited to inform the Department of Planning and Development before 4:00 pm, Tuesday, November 3, 2020, by calling 548-0457. The Planning Advisory Committee will meet at 5:15 pm, Tuesday, November 3, 2020, to consider written objections to the proposed land use. Anyone wishing to address the Committee on the written objections may do so at that time.
