What is Development Variance Permit No. 641-38 (DVP641-38)?

The subject property is located at 891 McBeath Road in Nicholson of Electoral Area A and is more particularly shown on the location map in the attached notice. 

The subject property is a mobile home park; the owner has made an application for a 25 year lease agreement so that he may sell the subject property but continue to live in one of the mobile homes located on the property. In accordance with Part 73 of the Land Title Act, a lease agreement that exceeds a 3 year term is considered a subdivision and therefore the requirements of Subdivision Servicing Bylaw No. 641 (Bylaw No. 641) apply.

The proposed 0.155 ha lease area is smaller than the 1 ha minimum parcel size requirement of Bylaw No. 641; all properties to be subdivided for single family residential use proposed to be serviced with an on-site sewage disposal system and an independent on-site water system must be a minimum of 1.0 ha. As this subdivision proposal is less than 1 ha, a DVP application is required to vary the minimum parcel size requirement of Bylaw No. 641. The applicant has also requested a variance to waive the requirements for proving on-site sewage disposal and on-site water systems that meets the requirements of Bylaw No. 641.

See attache notice for a detailed site plan of the proposal.
