On a Development Variance Permit (DVP)
MONDAY, JUNE 26, 2023 AT 6:00 PM
Meeting held electronically and open to public attendance in Council Chamber, City Hall
Zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 8387, 2023 for 114 and 118 Sprice Street Rezoning,
Development Variance Permit, and Development Permit applications have been received to allow the development of 10 single-detached houses on compact lots on the properties located at 114 and 118 Sprice Street in Queensborough. The applicant is proposing two different lot configurations (Type A and Type B) to provide more flexibility in the housing form.
A rezoning from the existing (Queensborough Neighbourhood Residential Dwelling Districts (RQ-1) zone to (Single Detached Dwelling Districts (Compact Lots)) (RT-2D) zone would be required to permit this development. Development Variance Permits are being requested to vary the minimum permitted lot frontage for all ten proposed lots and vary the permitted height of the detached garages for Type B lots.
The rezoning application is consistent with the Official Community Plan, and in accordance with sections 464(2) and 467 of the Local Government Act, the Corporation of the City of New Westminster will not hold a public hearing on Zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 8387, 2023.
