On July 16, 2020, the City of Ottawa received the second submission regarding the Plan of Subdivision and Zoning By-law Amendment applications. This submission is in response to the comments provided to the applicant in December 2019.
On October 8, 2019, the City of Ottawa received planning applications Bousfields Inc., on behalf of Clublink Corporation ULC to develop the lands at 7000 Campeau Drive.
The applications are to develop a residential subdivision that includes a mix of housing types, parks, stormwater management ponds, open spaces, landscape buffers and roadways in Kanata North.
Details about the proposed development application
The subject site is approximately 70.89-hectares (175.89-acres) and is made up of four irregularly shaped parcels separated by the local road network. The municipal address for the property is 7000 Campeau Drive, however, there is also frontage along abutting roads including Knudson Drive, Beaverbrook Road and Weslock Way.
Currently, the site is:
- Occupied by the Kanata Golf & Country Club, which consists of an 18-hole golf course, a two-storey clubhouse, as well as a large surface parking lot on the southwest portion of the site
- The subject site is located within the low-rise residential neighbourhood of Kanata Lakes north of Highway 417, west of Beaverbrook Road and east of Terry Fox Drive
- The adjacent area includes low-rise residential neighbourhoods to the north, east and west, and to the south is the major east-west arterial road Campeau Drive and the Kanata Town Centre further south
The applicant described the third submission as including the following changes:
- Revising all 16.5 metre wide rights-of-way to 18 metres
- Introducing landscaped buffers, either 3 or 6 metres in depth, along all existing development, depending on the existing vegetation and tree conditions
- Increasing the size of the Woodland Park in Parcel A from 1.62 to 1.68 hectares (see Appendix A for key map)
- Increasing the size of the central Neighbourhood Park in Parcel A from 3.53 to 3.76 hectares
- Increasing the amount of green space on the subject site from 19.44 hectares to 20.06 hectares and now to 23.14 hectares in the further revised proposal
- Retaining an additional rock outcrop on the north side of Knudson Drive, east of Street Nos. 16 and 3 in Parcel D as an additional open space, where previously townhouses were proposed
- Removing the blocks previously identified as Blocks 598-602 in Parcel B, such that Open Space Block 637 (previously 622) now extends along the entire extent of Craig Park
- Extending Block 673 (now Block 650) in Parcel A further south and providing a new connection to Street No. 7 at the south end of the open space block, along an existing utilities easement
- Expanding the proposed open space at the east end of the Campeau Drive frontage (previously Block 630, now Block 641, in Parcel A) to provide a wide frontage along both Campeau Drive and Street No. 11, whereas previously it had a narrow frontage along Campeau Drive only (the pedestrian walkway to Street No. 9 is maintained as well)
- Combining the former Blocks 412 and 733 at the end of the cul-de-sac of Street No. 10 (abutting Saint-Rémi Catholic Elementary School ) into new Block 719 (in Parcel D)
- Reducing the number of units from 1,544 to 1,480
- Introducing new walkway connections throughout the subject site
- Updating the proposed zoning with maximum lot coverages for detached zones
A total of 1,480 units is now proposed as part of the applications.
