The purpose of the meeting is to hear public comment on the application for Official Plan and Zoning By-law amendments filed with the Town of Tecumseh for the southerly 0.56 acre portion of a 3.32 acre parcel of land located on the southwest corner of County Road 22 and Lesperance Road intersection. The portions of land subject to the applications is currently designated "General Commercial" with a site-specific policy in the Sandwich South Official Plan. This site specific policy permits the existing parking area associated with the Home Hardware Store and also prohibits a vehicular driveway access onto Westlake Drive. The purpose of the proposed Official Plan amendment is to revise the site-specific policy in order to remove the clause containing this prohibition and thereby facilitating the installation of a new driveway access onto Westlake Drive. The proposed new driveway will serve as a second vehicular ingress/ egress access point for the existing Home Hardware.
The purpose of the associated Zoning By-law amendment is to revise the current "General Commercial Zone" (C1-7) zone which prohibits a vehicular driveway access to Westlake Drive in order to remove the noted prohibition.
