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


1710 Sunset Drive: Mr. Rejean Boudreau has made an application to build an addition of 12 feet by 18 feet (216 square feet) on his detached garage located at 1710 Sunset Drive. The property is located in a Residential Area. The existing garage is 30 feet by 35 feet (1050 square feet). With the proposed addition the total square area of the garage will be 1266 square feet.

The Zoning By-Law states that “in a Residential zone the total square area of accessory buildings may occupy up to 8 percent of the lot area, to a maximum of 1076 square feet”, creating a variance of 190 square feet over the total square feet of accessory buildings permitted. 


4 Côte Bleue Drive: Mr. Marc-André LeBlanc has made an application to build a detached garage of 40 feet by 30 feet (1200 square feet) in the front yard of the property located at 4 Côte Bleue Drive. There are presently two small accessory buildings on his property. The total square area of accessory buildings will be 1468 square feet +/-.   

The Zoning By-Law states that “in a Residential zone the total square area of accessory buildings may occupy up to 8 percent of the lot area, to a maximum of 1076 square feet +/-”, creating a variance of 392 square feet over the total square feet of accessory buildings permitted.

The proposed two-story garage will be approximately 22 feet in height. The zoning by-law states that “all Accessory Buildings shall be limited to one storey in height and be no higher or larger in area than the main building”, creating a variance for the second storey.

The proposed detached garage will be built in the front yard of the main building. The Zoning By-Law states that “No accessory building may be placed in the front and/or front yard of a main building”, creating a variance for the location of the proposed garage on the property.

There are presently two small accessory buildings on the property. The Zoning By-Law states that “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”.

Mr. LeBlanc also made an application to build an addition on his house for a garage. A portion of the addition will be built 6 feet from the rear lot line. The City Zoning By-Law states that “No building may be placed, erected or altered so that it is within 25 feet from the rear lot line”, creating a variance of 19 ft. +/- for the rear lot line setback.


1065 Joan of Arc Lane: Mrs. Carole Benoit has made an application to build 39 feet +/- of privacy fence along the north-west property line. The proposed height of the fence is 8 feet.

The City Zoning By-Law states that: 

3.18 FENCES, WALLS, HEDGES AND SHRUBBERY 

3.18.1 Notwithstanding any provision of this By-Law, subject to this section, fences, walls, hedges and shrubbery may be located on any lot or in any yard. 

3.18.2 No fence, wall, hedge or shrubbery may; 

        (b) Except for hedges or shrubbery, 1800 mm (6 feet) above the average finish grade if located beyond 4876 mm (16 feet) from any street property lines. 

Because the application is for a fence of 8 feet above the average finish grade, a variance of 2 feet is required. 


2025 Osprey Court: Mr. & Mrs. Michael Lavigne have made and application to build an addition on their house located at 2025 Osprey Court for a Granny Flat. The property in question is zoned Residential Single Family Dwelling. The proposed use of “Granny Flats” is permitted subject to such terms and conditions as may be imposed by the Planning Advisory Committee. 


710 Youghall Drive: Mr. Pierre Barthe has made an application to build a detached garage of 30 feet by 36 feet (1080 sq. ft.) in the front yard of the property located at 710 Youghall Drive. There is presently one small accessory building on his property. The total square area of accessory buildings will be 1380 square feet +/-.

The property is presently zoned Rural. The Zoning By-Law states that “in a Rural zone, the total square area of accessory buildings may occupy up to 8 percent of the lot area, to a maximum of 1076 square feet +/-”, creating a variance of 380 square feet over the total square feet of accessory buildings permitted. 

The proposed two-storey garage will be approximately 27 feet in height. The zoning by-law states that “all Accessory Buildings shall be limited to one storey in height and be no higher or larger in area than the main building”, creating a variance for second storey. 

The proposed detached garage will be built in the front yard of the main building. The Zoning By-Law states that “No accessory building may be placed in the front and/or front yard of a main building”, creating a variance for the location of the proposed garage on the property. 


360-364-368-374 St-Andrew Street: Maritime Refrigeration & Air Conditioning Ltd. has made an application to subdivide five existing parcels of land into four building lots. The purpose of the subdivision plan is to solve building encroachment on adjacent properties, access to the properties, etc. The buildings located on the existing properties are classified by the City of Bathurst Municipal Plan and City Zoning By-Law as existing non-conforming uses. The applicant proposes to convert one main building into an accessory building.

The city Planning Advisory Committee needs to approve the following variance before the Municipal Planning Officer can approve the proposed subdivision plan:  

Lot 2020-2: A variance of 31.8 feet for the lot frontage and the approval of the existing accessory building. 

Lot 2020-3: A variance of 31.8 feet for the lot frontage.   

Lot 2020-3: The applicant proposes to convert the existing commercial building located on the lot to an accessory building. The Zoning By-law states that “Notwithstanding any other provision of this By-Law, a building in the CBD may be converted into a permitted use provided that all Zoning By-law requirements for the proposed use can be met.” 


Anyone wishing to make a presentation before the Committee in regards to these applications is invited to inform the Department of Planning and Development before 4:00 pm, Friday, May 1, 2020 by calling 548-0457. The Planning Advisory Committee will meet at 5:15 pm, Tuesday, May 5, 2020 to consider written objections to the proposed land use.
