Opportunity Villages Community Land Trust applying for re-zoning

Municipality of Chatham-Kent Council will vote on a staff recommendation on a zoning by-law amendment at 10 Taylor Avenue in Chatham on Monday for the Opportunity Villages Community Land Trust.

“The applicant is proceeding with the redevelopment of the property with new residential uses,” Chatham-Kent staff said in a report, which will be before Council at their virtual planning meeting on Monday, July 19, 2021.

“The development is planned as a single site with no subdivision of land. Proposed housing types include 18 single detached dwellings, 6 semi-detached dwelling or duplex units, and 6 row house or triplex units, totaling 30 units.”

Municipal staff say the units are proposed to range in area from 55 sq. m to 84 sq. m (600 to 900 sq. ft.).

“Each unit will be provided with one dedicated off-street parking space,” a staff report indicates.

“One non-residential building is proposed as a common area to provide additional indoor amenities to residents of the development, and the broader community.”

The property is located on the west side of Taylor Avenue through to the east side of Memory Lane, between Grand Avenue East and Forest Street, in Chatham and is currently vacant.

Monday’s meeting starts at 6 p.m.
