Cancelled - Public Hearing - 288 Back Line

Thu, 2014/03/06 - 7:00pm

No submissions were received by the deadline date. Therefore, in accordance with the Urban and Rural Planning Act, the public hearing was cancelled.

The City of St. John’s had planned a Public Meeting to discuss the proposed rezoning of land at civic number 288 Back Line from the Open Space (O) Zone and Agricultural (AG) Zone to the Rural Residential Infill (RRI) Zone and Agricultural (AG) Zone. It is the intention of the applicant to develop the front (eastern) portion of the property to allow the construction of one single detached dwelling while leaving the rear (western) portion of the parcel to remain in the Agricultural (AG) Zone. A five metre development buffer from the watercourse would be required, and no development could be allowed on the AG Zone portion of the property except what is permitted in the AG Zone.

The proposed amendments may be viewed at the Department of Planning, Development and Engineering, third floor, St. John’s City Hall. To view these amendments or for further information, please phone (709) 576-8220, or e-mail:
