Public Meeting: 66-68 Queen's Road (Parish Lane Development)

Wed, 2020/11/18 - 7:00pm

A Public Meeting will take place online regarding a rezoning application for 66-68 Queen’s Road (Cathedral Parish Hall).
Following a public meeting on November 27, 2019 to discuss rezoning and development for 66-68 Queen’s Road, the applicant changed the proposed design. The applicant now proposes four (4) townhouses (instead of a large residential building) along Queen’s Road and has re-oriented the proposed 36-unit residential building on Harvey Road. The revised Land Use Assessment Report (LUAR) is available on the City’s website for public review.
The Minister of Environment, Climate Change and Municipalities has requested public consultation in relation to the proposed St. John’s Urban Region Regional Plan Amendment No. 1, 2020 to re-designate land at 66-68 Queen’s Road from Public Open Space to Urban Development. A copy of the amendment is available upon request. 
This proposed Regional Plan amendment would enable Council to amend the St. John’s Municipal Plan and Development Regulations to accommodate the proposed development. With the change in proposed building types, Council is considering different zones than previously advertised. Council is considering rezoning the land on Queen’s Road from the Institutional (INST) Zone to the Residential Mixed (RM) Zone for the townhouses, and from the Open Space (O) Zone to a new site-specific Apartment zone on Harvey Road to accommodate the Apartment Building and ensure that its size and height remains as shown. A Municipal Plan amendment is required.
The existing building, Cathedral Parish Hall, is designated by Council as a Heritage Building and the applicant’s design proposes demolition of this building to allow for the new buildings
