    The owner of the subject lands has submitted an Official Plan Amendment application which proposes to redesgnate to the Downtown Commercial Core.  This designation will permit the development of a mixed use development with Commercial/Office along the Innisfil Beach Road frontage incorporating the existing Heritage dwelling.  The balance of the site is proposed to have a u-shaped multi storey residential component with and internal courtyard.  The Public Meeting is scheduled for July 15, 2020.  See attached information documents.

    Official Plan Amendment and Zoning By-law Amendment applications have been submitted to permit up to 3 street townhouse units or semi-detached units with the existing 3 unit sewer allocation currently available for the subject lands through Council, together with a future development consisting of an additional 7 street townhouses fronting on Wellington Street and 18 condominium townhouses fronting on a private road, to be constructed when sewer allocation is available, subject to a future Environmental Assessment process for Cooktown servicing options. The applications propose to maintain the existing single-detached dwelling on the property, located at 24 Wellington Street.

    Official Plan Amendment and Zoning By-law Amendment applications have been submitted to permit up to 3 street townhouse units or semi-detached units with the existing 3 unit sewer allocation currently available for the subject lands through Council, together with a future development consisting of an additional 7 street townhouses fronting on Wellington Street and 18 condominium townhouses fronting on a private road, to be constructed when sewer allocation is available, subject to a future Environmental Assessment process for Cooktown servicing options. The applications propose to maintain the existing single-detached dwelling on the property, located at 24 Wellington Street.


    Effect of Official Plan Amendment:

    To redesignate the area shown in blue on the enclosed key map from “Residential Low Density 1” to “Residential Medium Density Special Section” to permit a total of 28 units comprised of townhouse units or a mix of townhouse and semi-detached dwellings once additional sewer allocation is available in Cookstown.

    Effect of Zoning By-law Amendment:

    To rezone the area shown in red on the enclosed key map (lands known municipally as 22A Wellington Street) from “Residential 1 (R1) Zone” to “Residential Townhouse Exception Hold (RT-X(H)) Zone” to permit 3 street townhouses or semi-detached dwellings based on existing sewer allocation.  A Hold (H) is proposed to be placed on these lands until wastewater servicing is allocated.

    A Concept Plan of the proposed 28 unit development is enclosed with this notice.  Please note this is conceptual only.  A future public meeting would be required for discussing the details of the layout at the time future sewer allocation is available, at which time the balance of the subject lands would be rezoned and subdivided.

    Proposed Draft Zoning and Shoreline By-law Changes

    Zoning By-law provisions are needed to implement the Downtown Commercial Area Official Plan designations and to lift the Interim Control By-law affecting certain properties on Innisfil Beach Road and Lakelands Avenue.

    Staff are working on draft zoning provisions, and considering the following changes:
    • a maximum of four storeys near 25 Sideroad and gradually lowered to a maximum of two storeys near Lake Simcoe
    • Enhanced setbacks to existing residential zones
    • Provisions to support a traditional main street building form on Innisfil Beach Road
    • Imposing restrictions on some uses (e.g. managing noise impacts)
    The properties directly impacted by the changes are listed on the innisfil.ca/ICB webpage.

    Please note a concurrent change to the Our Shore Community Planning Permit By-law (062-17) is also proposed, to allow five Lakelands Avenue properties abutting the lake to be regulated under the Town Zoning By-law (080-13).

    An online survey has been provided for residents to provide feedback on the draft proposal.


    Frequently Asked Questions

    What will happen with my property taxes if zoning changes are made? 
    • Even if residential properties are re-zoned to commercial, the residential taxation will not change until they are redeveloped with a commercial use. Where properties are vacant (where there are no buildings on a property) tax rates may shift when a rezoning occurs. 
    Is the Town going to expropriate or buy properties?
    • Though expropriation is a tool available to the Town where justified and approved by Council, there are no plans to expropriate lands within the area currently affected by the ICB.
    Will I be permitted to sell my house? 
    • The Interim Control By-law has only put a freeze on development on certain lands. It has no effect on the ability of an owner to sell or purchase lands.  A re-zoning would not restrict a sale.   
    Can I renovate or will this hinder that ability to get a permit?
    • Once the subject lands are re-zoned, you will still be able to renovate and obtain permits to maintain your home as a residential dwelling. However, where new non-residential development occurs, it would need to meet the new Zoning provisions.
