Agenda FCA Land Use Committee: June 7



Fernwood Community Association Land Use Committee

Wednesday, June 7, 2017 at 7:00 p.m.

1923 Fernwood Road


The June 7, 2017 Land Use Committee meeting is the Preliminary Community Meeting for two rezoning proposals


7:00 PM

2527 Scott Street:

The owner of this property wants to enclose the existing back balcony and as a result will increase the homes floor space. As this is property was a house conversion it is regulated by the City’s House Conversion Regulations. House Conversion regulations do not allow for “Any extension to a building which creates additional enclosed floor space…” The enclosing of the balcony adds additional floor space, therefore, triggering a rezoning.

For more information about the section of the bylaw that applies in this situation please see: SCHEDULE G – HOUSE CONVERSION REGULATIONS of the City’s Zoning Regulation Bylaw (City of Victoria website).


7:45 PM

1913-1915 Fernwood Road:

The owner of this property wants to convert the existing house to a four unit strata.

Although the property is currently zoned R1-B; Single Family Dwelling Distinct, the existing house on the property is a legal non-conforming duplex.

At this public meeting the owners architect will discuss the changes they would like to make to the property.
