434 Hilson Ave

We have received an application to the Committee of Adjustment (CoA) for the redevelopment of 434 Hilson Avenue by Ruth and David McEwan. (Application No. D08-01-15/B-00246 to D08-01-15/B-00249)  This application is being heard at the CoA on August 19 at 1:00 pm at 101 Centrepointe Drive.

This property is at the southwest corner of Hilson Avenue and Byron Avenue.  The property is currently a single family house and the zoning allows for detached or semi-detached houses.  The applicant is proposing to sever the lot into four parcels and build two sets of semi-detached houses (four houses in all).  All the houses, including driveways, will face onto Byron Avenue.  A number of significant variances are being requested in order to accommodate this proposed development.  Each of the units will have a single garage and one parking pad in front capable of accommodating only one subcompact car.  The detailed application, including the requested variances can be found at:

A summary of the requested variances are outlined in the table below (all measurements are in metres):
