1806 Scott Street - Zoning By-law Amendment and Site Plan Control Applications

You are here

The City of Ottawa has received a Zoning By-law Amendment and Site Plan Control application to construct a four-storey low-rise apartment building, with a total of 16 dwelling units, located at 1806 Scott Street. There will be two visitor parking space and 16 bicycle parking spaces provided. The proposed redevelopment is for the demolition of the existing single-family home for the construction of a four-story, low-rise apartment building at the intersection of Scott Street and Rockhurst Road. The maximum height of the proposed building will be 14.5 meters. The development features of the site are as follows:

• The proposed building consists of a total of 16 residential units.

• Out of the 16 units, 12 are designed as accessible units.

• An at-grade amenity area of 134 square metres is shown in the rear yard.

• Two surface parking spaces are provided at the southeast corner of the site.

• Access to the parking spaces will be via Rockhurst Road.

• Parking spaces will be constructed using permeable pavement materials to promote environmental sustainability.

• There are 16 bicycle parking spaces provided, 10 interior and 6 exterior.

The site in question is presently designated as Residential First Density Zone, Subzone MM (R1MM) under the City of Ottawa's Comprehensive Zoning By-law (2008-250). The existing zoning regulations do not allow for the construction of a low-rise residential apartment building. As a result, the proposed Zoning By-law Amendment aims to change the site's zoning to Residential Fourth Density, Subzone UD, Exception XXXX, Schedule YYY (R4UD[XXXX]SYYY) to enable the development. The proposal includes a new site-specific zoning schedule which will determine the permitted building heights, as well as mandatory setbacks and stepbacks.

The submission is now live on Devapps, where you can review the application and all supporting documents.

Our office is holding a community open house to give residents the opportunity to review the details further, and ask questions from the developer and City staff.
