493-495 Dawson Avenue

The Hampton Iona Community Group has received a notification for a proposed development at 493 Dawson Avenue, a property purchased by Tony and Anita Cassone.  The applicant is proposing to divide the property into two properties and build two semis.   The resulting properties will each have frontages of 7.6 m, depths of 28.86 m and areas of 219.6 m each.  The applicant is seeking approval to divide the existing property into two and for several minor variances.   These properties front onto Dawson Avenue with their backs on Kirkwood Avenue.  Because this house fronts on to two streets, both the front yard on Dawson and the back yard on Kirkwood are classified as front yards.  The full application is attached.

The variances for which approval is being sought are:

493 Dawson Avenue

  1. To permit a reduced lot area of 219.6 m2 whereas the by-law requires a minimum lot area of 225 m2.
  2. To permit a reduced minimum front yard setback of 6.0 m at the second floor level (side facing Dawson) whereas the bylaw requires a minimum front yard setback of 6.39 m which is the average of the abutting lots.
  3. To permit a reduced front yard setback of 5.85 m (side facing Kirkwood Avenue – really the backyard) whereas the by-law requires a minimum front yard setback to be the average of the existing front yard setbacks of the abutting lots which is 13.35 m.  This means that the back of the proposed house would extend farther into the backyard than the neighbouring houses by 7.5 m.
  4. To permit an increased total combined width of 5.1 m for the parking spaces, driveway and walkways whereas the bylaw permits a maximum width of 3.6 m for a property with a width of this size.  As per the picture, the applicant is not actually to install a driveway 5.1 m wide.  The actual driveway would 2.74 m wide but the sidewalk running perpendicular from the top of the driveway to the front door  would result in the top portion of the driveway (running along the front of the house) being 5.1 m.
