Richpark Homes Subdivision
The County has received a plan of subdivision application known as Richpark Homes (County file number 42T-2020-04) that proposes to create a single block subdivision in order to utilize Part Lot Control provisions under the Planning Act to implement a site plan that has been approved by the Town of The Blue Mountains. The approved site plan created a total of 2 single detached dwellings and 22 semi-detached dwellings. The intent is to create Parcels of Tied Land (POTL’s) using the Part Lot Control provisions under the Planning Act and then create a common element condominium for the proposed road and the open space lands to the south through a future condominium exemption application process.A zoning by-law amendment application has also been submitted to the Town of The Blue Mountains in order to reflect the type of condominium. Current zoning by-law provisions treat building setbacks as if the condominium is one single property notwithstanding that 24 dwelling units are to be built. Therefore, to implement a common elements condominium type development, the existing zoning provisions requires a minor adjustment in the wording to recognize that the proposed common element lands within this zone shall be considered to be one contiguous lot.
