503/501 Dawson Ave

The Hampton Iona Community Group has been advised that Eric Broadfoot, the owner of 503 Dawson has submitted an application to the Committee of Adjustment (CoA) to sever 503 Dawson into two properties and build two semi-detached dwellings at 503 and 501 Dawson.  Please note that because this house is on Dawson but backs onto Kirkwood, both the front and backyards are considered to “frontyards”.   Please also note that setbacks are both measured from the street and compared to the adjoining properties.

This will be going to the CoA on August 6th at 1:00 pm.   The applicant is seeking approval for the severance and for the following minor variances:

501 Dawson Avenue

  1. To permit a reduced lot area of 219.7 m2 when the bylaw requires 225 m2.
  2. To permit a reduced frontyard setback on Dawson of 6.01 m whereby the bylaw requires 6.295 m based on the average of the adjoining houses.
  3. To permit an increased setback to the first story of the front wall of 6.01 m whereby the bylaw requires a setback of 6 m.
  4. To permit a reduced rearyard yard setback to Kirkwood avenue of 6.23 m whereby the average setback of the adjoining houses is 10.425 m
  5. To permit a reduced rearyard setback of 6.23 m whereby the bylaw requires a setback of 6 m from the street.
  6. To permit a increased total combined driveway and walkway width of 4.93 m whereby the bylaw allows for a maximum total of 3.6 m when the lot width is between 7.5 m and 12 m.  Please note, however, the driveway is only 2.44 m wide and the walk that runs along the front of the house from the driveway to the front door is an additional 2.49 m.  There will be a front lawn on the rest of the property.
  7. To permit a front yard porch projection of 1.55 m whereby the bylaw requires a projection of 1.265 m based on the average front porch projection of the adjoining houses.
  8. To permit a deck to project 2.13 m into the backyard whereas the bylaw requires a projection of 1.065 m based on the average rearyard projection of the adjoining houses.
