PURPOSE OF THE APPLICATION:

whereas the By-law states, in part, that an outdoor commercial patio is prohibited
in any yard facing or abutting a residential zone, or abutting a yard or lane facing
or abutting a residential zone, unless it is located a minimum of 30 metres from
the residential zone.
b) To permit no screening or physical separation from of the patio from the
residential zone whereas the By-law prohibits, any outdoor commercial patio
facing or abutting a residential zone, or abutting a yard or lane facing or abutting
a residential zone, unless it is screened and physically separated from the
residential zone by a building, structure, fence or wall that is at least 2 metres in
height so as to mitigate both light and noise from the outdoor commercial patio.
THE APPLICATION indicates that the Property is not the subject of any other current
application under the Planning Act.
