Notice(s) of Approval

This is to serve notice that the Council of the Town of Yarmouth, at its meeting on Thursday, December 10th, 2020, at 7:30 pm, approved amendments to the following bylaws.

Notice of Approval: Land Use ByLaw Amendments To Rezone 38 Vancouver Street

This is to serve notice that the Council of the Town of Yarmouth, at its meeting on Thursday, December 10th, 2020, at 7:30 pm, approved amendments to its Land Use ByLaw to rezone 38 Vancouver Street from Low Density Residential (R-1) Zone to Medium Density Residential (R-2) Zone.

What are the amendments about?

The rezoning allows the owners of the property to convert the existing building on the property to a three-unit dwelling.

How will this affect me?

➡️ Under Medium Density Residential (R-2) the property owner may now establish housing up to four units in the building instead of only two units as previously permitted under Low Density Residential (R-1).

➡️ The change to R-2 zoning on the property helps enable much-needed housing within town.

How do I get more information?

Any aggrieved person, the Provincial Director of Planning or Council of an adjoining Municipality may, within 14 days of publication of this notice, appeal Council’s decision to the Nova Scotia Utility & Review Board in accordance with the Municipal Government Act.
