Notice of intention to pass an amending bylaw to remove a holding “H” symbol

In accordance with Section 36 of the Planning Act R.S.O 1990 c.P.13., Guelph City Council intends to pass a Zoning By-law Amendment to remove a Holding ‘H’ symbol from the City of Guelph Zoning By-law (1995)-14864, as amended.

The lands affected by the proposed amendment are municipally known as 27 and 35 Janefield Avenue. The subject lands are shown on the Key Location Map below.

The lands are currently zoned “Specialized Residential Single Detached with holding provisions” (R.1B-50(H)) and “Specialized Residential Semi-Detached/Duplex with holding provisions” (R.2-33(H)), according to Zoning Bylaw (1995)-14864, as amended. The lands are also zoned “Specialized Low Density Residential with holding provisions” (RL.1-22(H)) and “Specialized Low Density Residential with holding provisions” (RL.1-23(H)) Zones under Zoning Bylaw (2023)-20790, as amended. These site specific zones would permit the development of 6 semi-detached dwellings and associated Additional Dwelling Units on the subject lands.

The zoning for the subject lands were approved at a Council Meeting on December 12, 2023 with a Holding (H) symbol to ensure that an updated stormwater management report, updated detailed noise study, and Environmental Site Assessment reliance letter be prepared and approved to the satisfaction of the City Engineer prior to the development of the lands.

Engineering staff have reviewed the revised documents and are satisfied that they meet City requirements. The City can therefore remove the Holding ‘H’ symbol from the lands to permit development in accordance with the regulations of the above mentioned specialized zones.

The General Manager of Planning and Building Services will consider the proposed Zoning By-law Amendment to remove the Holding ‘H’ symbol after the public commenting period has closed. If you have comments or concerns about the proposed application, please submit your comments by 4:00pm on Thursday, May 16, 2024.
