Background

The Saddle Creek plan of subdivision was draft approved on November 25, 2004 and included the creation of 89 lots for single detached dwellings. The first phase of 27 lots was registered on November 28, 2005; subsequently the lapsing date on the draft approval was extended to November 28, 2008, and again to November 28, 2011. A portion of the draft plan is located in the floodplain of a tributary of the Whitson River. In order to develop the subdivision, the owner must satisfy both the Nickel District Conservation Authority and the City of Greater Sudbury that the homes and roads to be built will not be subject to Regional Storm flooding.
 
In July 2011, Dalron Construction requested a three (3) year draft plan extension which was granted, extending the draft plan approval to November 28, 2014. On July 11, 2014 Dalron Construction requested an additional three (3) year draft plan extension. The current conditions of draft approval are attached along with the current approved draft plan.
 
Owners are advised to contact the Planning Services Division a minimum of four months prior to the lapsing date in order to facilitate the processing time associated with draft plan of subdivision approval extension requests. Applicants must reapply for subdivision approval if a draft plan approval has lapsed as there is no other avenue for relief.
 
The following agencies and departments were asked to review the request to extend the draft plan approval and the conditions imposed by Council. Their comments are as follows:                   
           
Building Services
 
No comments or concerns.
 
Development Engineering
 
Please amend Condition 38 to include Canada Post and revise Persona to Eastlink.
 
Transportation Engineering
 
No comments received.
 
Nickel District Conservation Authority
 
The Nickel District Conservation Authority would request that the following be added to Condition #31:
 
“That prior to any development occurring in the designated floodplain, the Paquette-Whitson Drain must be constructed.”
 
Processing Fees
 
The amount is calculated as per By-law 2014-3 being the Planning Application Fees By-law.
 
Base fee                      $2,660.00
54 lots x $106             $5,724.00
Total Fee:                    $8,384.00 (maximum $10,000.00)
 
25% of Application Fee (for a 3 year extension): $2,096.00
 
Total Applicable Fee: $2,096.00
 
Summary
 
Planning staff are satisfied that there are no land use matters which need to be addressed at this time. Minor changes to conditions as requested by commenting departments and agencies and new standard wording have been proposed in the revised conditions. It is recommended that a three year extension be granted upon payment of Council’s processing fee of $2,096.00.
