IMSP and Development Regulation Amendments

An amendment to either the Integrated Municipal Sustainability Plan (IMSP) or the Development Regulations involves a change to either specific text or a specific map.  A text amendment may involve changing one work or many sections of the IMSP and/or Development Regulations, with no change to the land use mapping.  An example of a text amendment could involve the addition or removal of a condition for a specific use; i.e adding a condition that addresses reduced setbacks on side yards.  An amendment to the land use zoning maps could involve a change to the boundaries and designation of one, several or all zones.  If a zoning amendment is successful, the land is then capable of supporting all uses, permitted and discretionary, of the new zone. The City uses this webpage as one method of delivery to give notice to the residents of Corner Brook whenever a proposal has been requested to amend the IMSP or the Development Regulations.

Recently Proposed Amendments

MP/DR 19-03 – CRDA to RMD

Please take notice that the Corner Brook City Council is proposing to amend the City’s Integrated Municipal Sustainability Plan 2012 (i.e. the Municipal Plan) and 2012 Development Regulations.  Municipal Plan Amendment MP19-03 and the associated Development Regulations Amendment MP19-03 would allow Council to consider approval of a land use re-designation and rezoning from ‘Comprehensive Residential Development Area (CRDA)’ to ‘Residential Medium Density (RMD)’, to allow for the construction of a single dwelling at 701 O’Connell Drive.  A single dwelling is a prohibited use in the CRDA future land use designation and use class.  The proposed Amendments would re-designate and re-zone the CRDA portion of the subject property to RMD to allow the proposed development.  The proposed amendments are mapping changes.
