The City’s Planning Committee today approved changes that will allow work to proceed on proposed subdivisions in Barrhaven, Stittsville and Kanata North.
A new low-rise subdivision is planned at 4025 Strandherd Drive in Barrhaven, and will include a mix of detached homes, townhouses and low-rise apartment buildings, along with a small local commercial block. The final phase of the Fernbank Crossing subdivision in Stittsville will include 107 detached homes and four blocks of townhouses, as well as an elementary school site, a paramedic post and a transit station with park and ride. The final phase of the subdivision at 124 Battersea Crescent in Kanata will feature a four-storey, 79-unit apartment building.
The Committee also approved applications to demolish two homes in the Rockcliffe Park community. While the homes at 110 Lakeway Drive and 1 Coltrin Place are located within the Rockcliffe Park Heritage Conservation District, the Committee approved the applications based on assessments of their cultural heritage value. The proposed replacement buildings are considered compatible with the character of Rockcliffe Park.
The two applications for demolition will be considered at City Council on Wednesday, August 23, along with a zoning amendment to permit a commercial plaza at the corner of Innovation Drive and Terry Fox Drive in Kanata. All other items from this meeting will go to City Council on Wednesday, September 13.
