November 14, 2019
Council Updates

A small subdivision of single-family homes could soon move ahead on a 0.8-hectare property in the established City View neighbourhood of Nepean after the City’s Planning Committee today approved a zoning amendment at 21 Withrow Avenue.

The property is the site of Kilmorie House, a heritage-designated stone house. The applicant proposes to retain and protect the heritage building while constructing nine houses on the remainder of the site, with access along a new, private road.

The Committee also approved amendments to permit a six-storey building at 89 Richmond Road in Westboro. The property is intended to feature retail space at ground level and 14 apartments above, adding new rental housing to this popular neighbourhood.

The Planning Committee approved a zoning amendment that reduces the required percentage of single-family houses in new residential communities, providing greater flexibility for builders in Ottawa.

Items approved at today’s Planning Committee meeting will go to Council on Wednesday, November 27.
