The principal purpose of the Amendments is to allow the development of the Mini Home subdivision (Valley View Estates).  The proposed amendments are map amendments to the IMSP and DR. An approval of the series of inter related rezonings on O’Connell Drive will achieve the following:

  • To enlarge the existing George Daddy Dawe Memorial Soccer Pitch to allow room for a new 50 stall gravel parking lot for the soccer pitch by changing Rural (R) lands to Open Space (OS);
  • To remove the current non-conforming status of 84 Hilliard’s Road, an existing, developed, single residential property, by changing the property zone from the current Comprehensive Residential Density Area (CRDA) to Residential Medium Density (RMD);
  • To provide additional RMD sites to be developed with access via Hilliard’s Road;
  • To provide additional OS zoned lands adjacent the George Daddy Dawe Memorial Soccer Pitch and O’Connell Drive as additional amenity space;
