1128-95 AMENDMENT - ASP Cassils RoadCounty of Newell No. 4 By-law No. 1128-95 A By-law of the County of Newell No. 4, in the Province of Alberta, to amend the Cassils Road Area Structure Plan, By-law 1036.91. Whereas County Council feels that amendments to the Cassils Road Area Structure Plan are required to accommodate current development proposals; And Whereas County Council has advertised these proposed amendments by Public Notice, And Whereas a Public Hearing will be held on June 8, 1995 to hear any concerns regarding these proposed amendments, Therefore be it resolved that the following amendments be made to By-law 1036-91, being the Cassils Road Area Structure Plan: That the text within the section entitled "Phase II" on Page 15 of the Area Structure Plan be deleted and replaced with the following text: "The second phase of development should be allowed to commence when it is demonstrated that there is sufficient demand for additional lots. At this stage, additional acreage lots will be developed as an expansion of Westland Acres, to the north and west. This will involve the extension of roads into the area immediately west of Westland Acres, and the creation of 20 to 25 additional lots Isee Figure 81. As this expansion occurs, additional access into this area must be provided. The road connecting the Westland Acres development with the service road to the south, parallel to Cassils Road, will be required as a condition of approval for any expansion of Westland Acres west of this connecting road. In Phase II, the ultimate level of development should be in the order of 50 to 60 lots. As in Phase I, the location of existing buildings and developments must be addressed. Similarly, as lots are subdivided and developed, the potential re- subdivision of these lots into 15 to 17 metre wide urban type lots must be taken into consideration. This means that new lots should have frontages of multiples of 15-17 metres. These lots will not be serviced by a water system or sewer system. Even though the lots should meet the Land Use By-law minimum size requirement of 0.5 hectares, and must be at least 0.20 hectares to meet the Subdivision Regulations for unserviced lots, the increasing numbers and density of private sewage disposal systems raises environmental concerns. As a result, prior to subdivision approval in this phase, any developer shall provide satisfactory percolation and ground water tests and any other required engineering information to the County, Provincial Plumbing Inspector and the Subdivision Approving Authority." 2. That Schedule "A" of this amending By-law shall replace Figure 8, on Page 16 of the Cassils Road Area Structure Plan. 3. That the text within the section entitled "Future Phases" on Page 17 of the Area Structure Plan be deleted and replaced with the following text: "Subdivision and development beyond Phase II are outside the scope of this Area Structure Plan as these developments are more urban than rural in nature. However, provisions for future development have been taken into account in this plan. Phase III would be the re•subdivision of lots into smaller urban sized lots. This phase of development can only proceed with the installation of a municipal water and sewer system, and will not occur until this area is annexed by the Town of Brooks. Planning beyond Phase II will have to be done as the demand warrants and will require engineering studies and a new Area Structure Plan." 4. That the text within the section entitled "9. Subdivision and Development Guidelines" on Page 18 of the Area Structure Plan be deleted and replaced with the following text: "To ensure that the subdivision and development of lots during the first two phases -- of this plan do not prejudice future re•subdivision of the land in this area, the fallowing guidelines shall be used in controlling subdivision and regulating development: • All subdivisions shall be in accordance with this plan; • The exact locations of all buildings and developments will be required to ensure proper planning of all lots; • Prior to subdivision approval, applicants will be required to provide information on the utility services to be used; • Percolation and ground water testing, satisfying the requirements of the Provincial Plumbing Inspector, will be required prior to subdivision approval; • All lots created in Phase I and II must have a minimum frontage of 30 metres and a minimum area of 0.50 hectares, wherever possible; • The design of all new lots must take into account the future urban use of this area and, therefore, these lots should be multiples of 15 to 17 metres in width; • All new development shall comply with the following minimum set-back requirements: Front Set-back 7.5 metres Side Set-back 1.5 metres unless otherwise approved by the Municipal Planning Commission."
