SUBJECT LAND                                                  

Official Plan Amendment No. 7 and Rezoning Application 2-2018-85 of 2002 are submitted by Vision ’74 Inc. for the subject land located at 229 Wellington Street.

The subject land has area of 17,910 m2 (4.4 acres) is designated “Apartment Residential” and “Site and Area Specfic Policy Area #26” in the Sarnia Official Plan and zoned “Urban Residential 5-21 Site Zone (UR5-21)” in Zoning By-law 85 of 2002. The site is used for a nursing home (with 146 beds), rest home (34 beds), 432.5m2 medical clinic, and one single detached dwelling.



Official Plan Amendment No. 7

It is proposed that the Official Plan be amended by deleting the map showing the “Site and Area Specific Policy Area #26” and replacing it with a new map showing the whole of the subject lands. This amendment is a technical/mapping amendment. The site-specific policy permits an existing medical centre/clinic use in addition to the “Apartment Residential” uses.


Rezoning Application 2-2018-85 of 2002           

It is proposed that the UR5-21 Site Zone be amended to permit an apartment dwelling with 36 units, to be located south of Wellington Street and west of Crawford Street. The building would provide:

  • an exterior side yard setback of 4.5m from Crawford Street and maximum height of 4 stories
