Liquor License Referra l

13-0413-CSS-LIQ (J ennifer and Duncan Miller) Page 2

BACKGROUND:

Site Context

The subject property is located to the west of Monashee Road and north of Brewer Bond in the area of Silver Star Mountain known as ' Village West'. Pinheads Bowling is located at# 71 - 30

Monashee Road in the lower floor of the Firelight Lodge building . Firelight Lodge is a 5 storey building which also houses 65 residential strata units. The following orthophoto of the subject and surrounding properties was taken in 2013:

The subject property and properties to the north , west and east are zoned Village Commercial

(V.C) and are designated as Commercial in the Silver Star Official Community Plan. The property to the south is zoned Village Commercial and Open Space I Community Recreation and is designated in the OCP as Commercial and Open Space I Community Recreation.

T he Proposal

The owners have applied to the Liquor Control and Licensing Branch (LCLB) for a change to their Liquor Licence from Food Primary to Liquor Primary . The existing food-primary licence allows Pinheads Bowling to serve any kind of liquor, provided that a full range of appetizers and main courses are available whenever liquor is available. The primary focus of the establishment is entertainment (bowling facility) . The current and proposed licensed hours of operation are

9 : 00am to midnight , Monday through Sunday.

13-0413-CSS-LIQ (Jennifer and Duncan Miller) Page 3

Pinheads has a capacity of 145 (this number includes patrons and staff). The capacity is not proposed to change with this application.

The intent of the application is to licence the bowlers' seating area and to provide the applicant with more flexibility around meal service than is currently permitted under the existing licence.

In addition, the applicant is requesting permission to have minors in the longue area accompanied by an adult parent or guardian up until 8:00 pm at night as permissible by LCLB policy. The applicant has also requested that minors be permitted within the bowling area at all times.

LIQUOR CONTROL AND LICENCING BRANCH REGULATIONS:

The LCLB require that this application be forwarded to the Board of Directors for consideration.

If the Board decides not to provide comment, a resolution indicating this decision must be provided to the Branch. If the Board wishes to provide comments on the application, the Board must take into account the following criteria:

1. the location of the establishment;

2. the proximity of the establishment to other social or recreational facilities and public buildings;

3. the person capacity and hours of liquor service of the establishment;

4. the number and market focus or clientele of liquor primary license establishments within a reasonable distance of the proposed location;

5. the impact of noise on the community in the immediate vicinity of the establishment; and,

6. the impact on the community if the application is approved.

Under the LCLB Regulations, if the operation of the establishment as a licensed establishment may affect nearby residents, the local government or first nation must gather the views of residents in accordance

with the Liquor Control and Licensing Act.

Also under the LCLB Regulations, if the local government or first nation wishes to provide comments to LCLB, it must provide the following in writing:

1. its comments addressing the criteria (noted above);

2. if it has gathered the views of residents: a. the views of the residents; b. the method used to gather the views of the residents; and, c. its comments and recommendations respecting the views of the residents;

3. its recommendations with respect to whether the license should be issued;

4. the reasons for its recommendations.

ZONING BYLAW:

The subject property is zoned Village Commercial in the Silver Star Zoning Bylaw. Uses permitted in the Village Commercial zone include accommodation uses, food services and drinking place uses, retail trade uses, transportation uses, community services uses, and arts, entertainment and recreation service uses. The uses listed under food services and drinking places includes restaurants with or without entertainment, bars, beer and wine gardens, cabarets,

BOARD of DIRECTORS - REGULAR AGENDA

cocktail lounges, pubs, night clubs. Restaurants with entertainment and drinking place uses are not permitted on a parcel that abuts a parcel in a residential zone.

REGIONAL DISTRICT POLICIES:

Regional District Policy No. GR-006 - Liquor Licenses

Regional District Policy No. GR-006 applies to this application. The Policy states that the

Regional District will not process a Liquor Licence referral until a complete referral has been received and a fee has been paid. A referral must contain a floor plan, site plan and building elevations. The applicant has submitted the required fee and floor plan and has indicated that the proposed patron participation entertainment will not require a change to the existing floor plan, site plan or exterior appearance.

The Policy further states that the Regional Board may call a Public Hearing to solicit input from adjacent property owners and the general public. The Policy also states that the Board may require that the applicant retain a qualified independent contractor, at the applicant's expense, to conduct a door-to-door survey to record the views and concerns of both owners and occupiers of land within a 400 m radius. Where the Board deems a public hearing or a door-to-door survey is not warranted, the Board may resolve to opt out on providing comment and allow the Liquor

Licensing Branch to consider the views of residents through means available to the Branch.

SILVER STAR OFFICIAL COMMUNITY PLAN

The Official Community Plan designates the land use of the subject property as Commercial -

Village West and Silver Woods. The following OCP Policies are applicable to the application:

1. Notwithstanding the 'Commercial' designation in the Village West and Silver Woods commercial development areas and in consideration of the adjacent

Knoll

residential properties, the Regional District does not support pub, cabaret or similar late night "noisy" uses on lands immediately adjacent to these

Knoll

properties.

PLANNING ANALYSIS:

The Regional District Liquor Licence Referral Policy specifies that it is not mandatory to hold a hearing for a liquor licence application; therefore, the Board could decide to comment on the application without gathering views of the residents. In this regard and consistent with the

Liquor Control and Licensing Branch requirements to be considered as part of a resolution on this matter, the Planning Department recommends that the Board of Directors support the application to change the Liquor Licence of Pinheads Bowling from Food Primary to Liquor

Primary as:

1. the potential for noise would likely not increase beyond current levels; and,

2. the community and nearby residents would not be impacted as the seating capacity and hours of service are not proposed to change, Pinheads Bowling is within close proximity to the commercial core of the resort community of Silver Star Mountain and similar commercial operations where current land use regulations and long-range planning have been implemented to adequately regulate and plan for these commercial operations.

13-0413-CSS-LIQ (Jennifer and Duncan Miller) Page 5

As the use of the establishment is not changing beyond licensing the bowlers' seating area and to providing the applicant with more flexibility around meal service, staff also recommend that the Board of Directors advise the Liquor Control and Licensing Branch that the views of residences were not gathered as the Board deemed the potential for noise would likely not increase and nearby residents would not be impacted.

It is acknowledged that the RCMP does not support the issuance of a liquor license which allows liquor sales prior to that which is permitted of other businesses in the Silver Star resort area. In this regard, three establishments in the area have liquor primary licences. Two of them have hours of liquor service starting at 11 :00 am and one which starts at 10:00 am. It is therefore recommended that the applicant address the comments of the RCMP as a condition of the Board's support of the application and request the license to reflect a 10:00 am start time.

Alternatively, if the Board desires to gather the views of the residences regarding the proposed changes to the liquor license, the Board could pass a resolution requiring the applicant to do so in accordance with Board Policy GR-006.

SUMMARY:

Jennifer and Duncan Miller have applied to the Liquor Control and Licensing Branch for a change to their Liquor Licence from Food Primary to Liquor Primary. The Liquor Control and

Licensing Branch require that this application be forwarded to the Board of Directors for consideration. The Planning Department recommends that subject to the applicant address the comments of the RCMP, the Board of Directors support the Liquor Primary Application as the potential for noise would likely not increase and nearby residents would not be impacted.

REFERRAL COMMENTS:

The application has been referred to the following for their review and comment:

1. Electoral Area "C" Director

2. Electoral Area "C" Advisory Planning Commission

3. RCMP - Vernon Detachment

The RCMP commented that they do not think the Bowling Lanes should be approved for liquor sales prior to 11:00 am, similar to the hours of operation of establishments whose primary purpose is to sell liquor.

4. Silver Star Resort

Silver Star Ski Resort advised they have no objections to this application.

Class 5 and 7

Non Urban (N.U)

Agricultural / Non Urban / Major Road / Development Permit Area for Protection of the Natural Environment and Floodplain

PROPOSED USE:

Second residence (modular home) for a family member / farm help

PLANNING DEPARTMENT RECOMMENDATION:

That the application of Dean and Laura Campbell under Section 20(3) of the Agricultural Land

Commission Act to place a second residence (modular manufactured home) for family members on the property legally described as the South 1/2 of the NE 1/4, Sec 16, Twp 41, ODYD,

Except Plans KAP44826 and KAP81250 and located at 670 Creighton Valley Road, Electoral

Area ‘D’ be supported and the Building Inspector be authorized to issue a Building Permit for the proposed residence.

BACKGROUND:

This is an application for a non-farm use (second dwelling) in the Agricultural Land Reserve

(ALR) under Section 20(3) of the Agricultural Land Commission (ALC) Act for the property located at 670 Creighton Valley Road. The owners of the property are proposing to replace an existing single wide manufactured home on the property with a new modular home that would be used by the parents of one of the owners.

BOARD of DIRECTORS - REGULAR AGENDA

January 15, 2014 - Item E.3

Agricultural Land Commission Application

13-0063-D-ALR (Dean & Laura Campbell) Page 2

The Zoning Bylaw does not permit secondary single family dwellings on ALR lands that are zoned Non Urban (N.U) unless the owner has first submitted an application to the ALC. The

Zoning Bylaw gives the Board three options in considering such applications:

1. Refuse to authorize the applicant to apply to the ALC;

2. Authorize the applicant to apply to the ALC for their adjudication; or

3. Authorize the Building Inspector to issue the Building Permit.

Site Context and the Proposal

The subject property is located on the south side of Creighton Valley Road. Creighton Creek runs through the property parallel to Creighton Valley Road. The land between Creighton Creek and Creighton Valley Road is cleared and relatively flat while the remainder of the property is treed and sloping. All of the buildings on the property are located within the area between

Creighton Creek and Creighton Valley Road. The buildings include a house, a manufactured home, and several agricultural and residential accessory buildings. Building Permits have been obtained for the existing buildings. The following orthophoto of the subject and surrounding properties was taken in 2007.

The subject and surrounding properties are zoned Non Urban (N.U) with the exception of the property to the northeast which is zoned Large Holdings (L.H). The south west quarter of the subject property and the properties to the south and southwest are not within the ALR and are designated as Non Urban in the OCP. The remainder of the property and the other surrounding properties are within the ALR and are designed within the OCP as Agricultural.

BOARD of DIRECTORS - REGULAR AGENDA

January 15, 2014 - Item E.3

Agricultural Land Commission Application

13-0063-D-ALR (Dean & Laura Campbell) Page 3

The owners of the property are proposing to replace an existing single wide manufactured home located in the southern homesite of the subject property with a new modular home that would be used by the parents of one of the owners. The proposed modular has a total floor area of

195.23 m² (2101.5 ft

2

(420 ft

2

) consisting of 148.27 m² (1596 ft

) garage and a 7.94 m² (85.5 ft

2 by the existing well, septic field and driveway.

2

) living space with an attached 39.02 m²

) covered deck. The modular is proposed to be serviced

Agricultural Capability of the Subject Property

The Canada Land Inventory agricultural capability classification system groups land into seven classes according to the land’s potential and limitations for agricultural use depending on soil and climate characteristics. As the class numbers increase from Class 1 to 7, the range of crops decreases. Associated with each class is a subclass that identifies limitations or special management practices needed to improve the soil. The classification usually gives land two ratings: unimproved and improved. Unimproved ratings describe the land in its native condition.

Improved ratings indicate the land’s potential once management practises have been implemented, such as irrigation, stone removal or drainage.

The Canada Land Inventory rates the northeast half of the subject property along Creighton

Valley Road as Class 5 with an improved rating of Class 4. Class 5 land is capable of producing cultivated perennial forage crops and specially adapted crops. Soil and/or climate conditions severely limit capability. Class 4 land is capable of a restricted range of crops. Soil and climate conditions require special management considerations. The subclasses associated with this portion of the land are identified as moisture deficiency, stoniness and topography .

The Canada Land Inventory rates the remainder of the subject property as Class 7. Class 7 lands have no capability for agriculture. The subclasses associated with the land are identified as topography and consolidated bedrock.

AGRICULTURAL LAND COMMISSION ACT AND REGULATIONS:

Section 18(a)(ii) of the ALC Act allows one residence per parcel of ALR land, and permits more than one residence where the additional residences are necessary for farm use. Section 3(1)(b) of the ALC Regulations allows one manufactured home, up to 9 m in width (otherwise known as a ‘double wide’), for use by a member of the owner’s immediate family.

OFFICIAL COMMUNITY PLAN:

The Electoral Areas “D” and “E” Official Community Plan designates the land use of the ALR portion of the subject property as Agricultural and the non-ALR portion as Non Urban. The areas with 30 m of Creighton Creek are designated Development Permit Areas for protection of the natural environment and protection from natural hazards (floodplain). Creighton Valley

Road is classified as a Major Road. The following Land Use Policies are relevant for this application:

Agricultural Land Policies

1) Agricultural lands are designated on the Official Community Plan Maps Schedules B, B1 &

B2 and are within the ALR and the

Agricultural Land Commission Act

will take precedence;

BOARD of DIRECTORS - REGULAR AGENDA

January 15, 2014 - Item E.3

Agricultural Land Commission Application

13-0063-D-ALR (Dean & Laura Campbell) Page 4

2) Lands designated as Agricultural are intended to be used for agricultural purposes and associated uses as allowed by the ALC and the Regional District. All uses and subdivision of ALR land shall be in accordance with the ALR Act, Regulations, Orders and Policies;

3) The rural character of Electoral Areas ‘D’ and ‘E’ shall be maintained to encourage the establishment of the widest range of agricultural activities.

ZONING BYLAW:

The subject property is zoned Non-Urban (N.U) in Regional District of North Okanagan Zoning

Bylaw No. 1888, 2003. The minimum lot size standard of the N.U zone is 7.2 ha. Uses permitted in the N.U zone include accessory farm sales, intensive agricultural uses, resource uses, bed and breakfast uses, boarding house uses, fruit and produce pickers’ cabins and work force housing units, home occupations uses, packing houses, wineries and cideries, single and two family dwellings, ancillary dwellings and manufactured homes. The number of dwellings allowed per lot in the N.U zone may not exceed:

1. one single family dwelling or one two family dwelling or one manufactured home; and

2. for lands that are located within the ALR, additional single family dwellings shall not be permitted unless the owner has first submitted an application to the ALC;

3. one ancillary single family dwelling on land in and out of the ALR; and

4. one additional single family dwelling on lots 14.4 ha or larger in size for lands located outside the Agricultural Land Reserve.

PLANNING ANALYSIS:

The owners of the subject property are proposing to replace an existing single wide manufactured home on the subject property with a new modular home which would be used by the parents of one of the owners. The Non-Urban (N.U) zone allows a second residence to be placed on the subject property without making application to the ALC if the gross floor area of the second residence does not exceed 75 m dwelling that is larger than 75 m

2

2

(807.3 ft

2

). The applicant would like to have a

and must therefore submit an application to the ALC. In considering such an application, the Board can refuse to authorize the applicant to apply to the

ALC; authorize the applicant to apply to the ALC for their adjudication; or authorize the Building

Inspector to issue the Building Permit.

It is recommended that the Board support the proposed second residence as the proposal complies with the policies of the Electoral Areas “D” and “E” OCP. It is noted that the OCP states that lands designated as Agricultural are intended to be used for agricultural purposes and associated uses as allowed by the ALC and the Regional District and that all uses of ALR land shall be in accordance with the

ALC Act

, Regulations, Orders and Policies.

Staff suggest approval of the application would have a minimal impact on the agricultural use of the subject property as the agricultural potential of the property is limited and the applicants are only proposing to replace an existing dwelling, albeit with a larger one. The proposed residence is consistent with Section 3(1)(b) of the ALC Regulations which allows one manufactured home, up to 9 m in width (otherwise known as a ‘double wide’), for use by a member of the owner’s immediate family. The living space of the proposed residence is 148.27 m² (1596 ft

2

).

2

). While the proposed residence also includes an attached garage and covered deck, the living space is consistent with that of a double wide manufactured home which has a standard size of approximately 167.23 m² (1800 ft

Staff acknowledge the proposal does not comply with Section 18(a)(ii) of the ALC Act which permits more than one residence per parcel where the additional residences are necessary for farm use. While the owners utilise the ' farmable ' portions of the subject property for some agricultural uses , it is suggested that the level of farming activity on the property does not warrants the need for farm help. A large portion of the property is rated as Class 7 within the

BC Land Inventory farming . and due to its poor soil conditions and topography , is not suitable for

SUMMARY:

This is an application for a non farm use (second dwelling) in the Agricultural Land Reserve for the property located at 670 Creighton Valley Road. The owners of the property are proposing to replace an existing single wide manufactured home located on the subject property with a new modular home that would be used by the parents of one of the owners . It is recommended that the Board support the proposed second residence as the proposal complies with the policies of the regulations of the Agricultural Land Commission and the Electoral Areas " D " and " E" OCP .

Shuswap River Floodplain. The property slopes upwards toward the northeast. Access to the property is gained from Enderby Mabel Lake Road. The property is used for agricultural purposes and currently contains three separate residences (single family dwellings), three barns and a machine storage shop.

As shown on the attached plan, the applicant is proposing to subdivide a 1.2 hectare lot from the southeast corner of the property. This portion of the property currently houses one of the single family dwellings and a shed. The lot would have 78 m of frontage on Enderby Mabel

Lake Road.

The subject and surrounding properties are zoned Non-Urban (N.U). The properties across the

Shuswap River are zoned Large Holdings (L.H). As shown on the map below, the subject and surrounding properties are located within the ALR (shown in cross-hatch) with the exception of properties to the northeast. There are a few Residential Two Family zoned (R.2) properties immediately to the south of the proposed homesite severance lot. The applicant also owns five adjacent properties to the west and north of the subject property.

Agricultural Capability of Subject Property and Supporting Properties

The Canada Land Inventory agricultural capability classification system groups land into seven classes according to the land’s potential and limitations for agricultural use depending on soil and climate characteristics. Class 1 land is capable of producing the very widest range of crops whereas Class 7 land has no capability for soil bound agriculture. As the class numbers increase from Class 1 to 7, the range of crops decreases. Class O refers to organic soils rather than mineral soils. The organic soil class definitions are equivalent in terms of their relative capabilities and limitations for agricultural use to those defined for mineral soil. Associated with each class is a subclass that identifies limitations or special management practices needed to improve the soil. The classification usually gives land two ratings: unimproved and improved.

Unimproved ratings describe the land in its native condition. Improved ratings indicate the land’s potential once management practices have been implemented, such as irrigation or drainage.

The Canada Land Inventory rates the southwest portion of the subject property as 70% Class 4 and 30% Class 5 with an improved rating of the same. The subclasses associated with these ratings are stoniness and excess water (groundwater). The remainder of the subject property is rated as 50% Class 4, 30% Class 5 and 20% Class 7 with an improved rating of the same. The subclasses associated with these ratings are stoniness and topography.

Agricultural Land Commission Policy No. 11 – Homesite Severance on ALR Lands

Page 4

The ALC has adopted the following guidelines to provide a consistent approach to the consideration and approval of homesite severance applications:

1. A once only severance may be permitted where the applicant submits documentary evidence that he or she has continuously owned and occupied the property as his or her principal place of residence since December 21, 1972.

2. Where an application for a homesite severance has had a previous subdivision application approved by the ALC resulting in the creation of a separate parcel, the ALC may consider the previous approval as having fulfilled the objectives of the Homesite Severance Policy and may deny any further consideration under the Homesite Severance Policy.

3. An application for a homesite severance will be considered only where the applicant submits documentary evidence showing a legitimate intention to sell the remainder of the property.

4. There will be cases where the ALC considers that good land use criteria rule out any subdivision of the land because subdivision would compromise the agricultural integrity of the area, and the ALC must therefore exercise its discretion to refuse the homesite severance. Where the ALC decides to allow a homesite severance, there are two options: a) the existing homesite may be created as a separate parcel where it is of a minimum size compatible with the character of the property; or b) where the location of the existing homesite is such that the creation of a parcel encompassing the homesite would, in the ALC’s opinion, create potential difficulty for the agricultural operation or management of the remainder, the ALC may, as it deems appropriate, approve the creation of a parcel elsewhere on the subject property.

5. The remainder of the subject property after severance of the homesite must be of a size and configuration that will, in the ALC’s opinion, constitute a suitable agricultural parcel. Where, in the ALC’s opinion, the remainder is of an unacceptable size or configuration from an agricultural perspective, there are three options: a) the ALC may deny the homesite severance; b) the ALC may require that the remainder be consolidated with an adjacent parcel; or c) the ALC may require the registration of a covenant against the title of the remainder and such a covenant may prohibit the construction of dwellings.

6. A condition of every homesite severance approved by the ALC shall be an order stipulating that the homesite is not to be resold for five years except in the case of estate settlements.

Regional District of North Okanagan Policy No. LU012 – Homesite Severance Policy

The above noted Policy states that homesite severance subdivision applications to the ALC should be considered on their own merits and the Regional Board may abandon or depart from the following established guidelines based on these merits:

1. Section 946 subdivisions within an ALR should not be authorized unless the subject property has been owned by the applicant prior to the enactment of the ALC Act on

December 21, 1972. Owners who purchased their land after the Act came into effect should not have any expectations of approval of any subdivision of their land.

2. Section 946 subdivisions should not be authorized where the property is owned by a limited company unless the company is owned by a family that resides on the subject property.

3. Section 946 subdivisions within an ALR should be located on land where soils have a lower capability rating for agricultural uses; near existing small lots within the vicinity of the proposed subdivision; and not near existing intensive agricultural operations in the area.

BOARD of DIRECTORS - REGULAR AGENDA

January 15, 2014 - Item E.2

Agricultural Land Commission Application

13-0274-F-ALR (Schalin c/o W.E. Maddox) Page 5

4. The density provisions of the Regional District Zoning Bylaw should be respected whereby the remnant lot following a Section 946 subdivision should meet the minimum lot size standard of the zone in which the property is located and further, if the lot is classified as a farm for assessment and taxation purposes, the remnant lot should be at least 2 ha.

5. The minimum lot size for a parcel being created should be 1 ha to reflect the minimum lot area requirement of the Ministry of Community, Aboriginal and Women’s Services applicable to lots serviced with on-site septic tank effluent disposal systems.

6. Notwithstanding the minimum lot standard cited above, the maximum lot size for the parcel being created pursuant to Section 946 should be the smallest possible land area necessary to incorporate an existing residence; accessory residential buildings that are located in close proximity to the existing residence; and the access driveway, well and septic tank effluent disposal system servicing the existing residence. Larger, vacant lots may also be approved where necessary in order to provide a suitable building site meeting the setback, site coverage and site servicing requirements of the Regional District Zoning and Subdivision

Servicing Bylaws in force from time to time.

7. Road dedication for widening an existing public road should be required across the entire frontage of the subject property, but should be the smallest possible land area necessary to satisfy the Ministry of Transportation requirements.

8. If an application is not authorized, the applicant should be allowed to make representations to the Regional Board or Committee respecting matters contained in the application and the applicant should be afforded a reasonable opportunity to be heard or to present written submissions on matters contained in the application.

OFFICIAL COMMUNITY PLAN:

The subject property is designated in the Electoral Area “F” Official Community Plan as Non-

Urban. In accordance with this designation, the following Policies are to be considered for this application:

Rural Low Density Policies

1. Low density rural lands are those used for or having a potential for resource extraction and that are not suitable for intensive development because of limitations of elevation, slope, water, accessibility, disruption of existing resource or agricultural uses, or interference with watershed conservation and are designated as Large Holding and Non-Urban.

2. The minimum parcel size for low density rural use shall be appropriate to the use, but in no case shall the minimum parcel size be less than that of the Non-Urban zone (7.2 ha) except in those cases where subdivision of a smaller lot is permitted by virtue of a road severance under the provisions of the Regional District Zoning Bylaw.

3. Where land is in the Non-Urban designation and in the ALR, the minimum parcel size of 7.2 ha shall only apply when that land is: a. excluded from the ALR; or b. approved for subdivision within the ALR pursuant to the ALC Act, Regulations thereto, or

Orders of the Commission; or c. exempted by the ALC Act, Regulations thereto, or Orders of the Commission.

4. Notwithstanding that the ALC may have indicated approval of or no objection, to this Plan, the

Commission is obliged to consider individual applications on their own merit under the mandate of the ALC Act and is not obliged to approve applications that comply with the minimum lot size or density of this land use designation.

5. Rural low density lands shall conform to the following requirements:

BOARD of DIRECTORS - REGULAR AGENDA

January 15, 2014 - Item E.2

Agricultural Land Commission Application

13-0274-F-ALR (Schalin c/o W.E. Maddox) Page 6

a. said lands should have access to a public road system meeting Ministry of Transportation standards in which emergency egress must be considered in wildfire interface areas; b. should not be subject to flooding or in an area with a high water table; c. should contain suitable building sites; d. must be serviced with a potable water supply meeting the requirements of DIVISION XIV -

SERVICES - POLICIES - Potable Water Supply; and e. must provide for the collection, treatment and disposal of sewage meeting the requirements of DIVISION XIV - SERVICES - POLICIES - Sewage Collection, Treatment and Disposal.

ZONING BYLAW:

The subject property is zoned Non-Urban (N.U). Uses permitted in the N.U zone include accessory farm sales, bed and breakfast uses, boarding house uses, fruit and produce pickers’ cabins and work force housing units on lots 4 ha or larger, home occupations uses, packing houses, wineries and cideries, single and two family dwellings, ancillary dwellings and manufactured homes. The number of buildings allowed per lot in the N.U zone may not exceed:

1. one single family dwelling or one two family dwelling or one manufactured home; and

2. for lands that are located within the ALR, additional single family dwellings shall not be permitted unless the owner has first submitted an application to the ALC; and

3. one ancillary single family dwelling on land in and out of the ALR, subject to the dwelling not exceeding a gross floor area of 75 m

2

(807.3 ft

2

) exclusive of attached open carports and open porches, shall not include a basement, shall not include habitable space in an attic, and shall not be permitted on lots smaller than 2 ha (4.942 acres).

A Section 946 subdivision application precludes considerations of lot size restrictions other than in the instance that the local government has established a minimum parcel size by bylaw. In this regard the Zoning Bylaw contains regulations setting such minimum lot sizes for parcels proposed to be subdivided under Section 946, however the regulations do not apply to properties within the ALR. The Zoning Bylaw requires that non-ALR lots must be 8.5 ha or larger in order to be subdivided under Section 946 of the Local Government Act.

PLANNING ANALYSIS:

It is recommended that this application be supported as it complies with the Policies of the

Electoral Area “F” Official Community Plan, including the Policy which states that all uses and subdivision of ALR land are to be in accordance with the Agricultural Land Commission Act, regulations thereto, and the orders of the Commission. In this regard, the proposed subdivision is consistent with the provisions of the ALC Homesite Severance Policy as outlined below:

1. the applicant has submitted evidence that he has continuously owned and occupied the property as his principal place of residence since December 21, 1972;

2. the ALC has not previously approved the subdivision of the property;

3. the proposed homesite is of a minimum size compatible with the character of the property;

4. the remainder of the subject property would be of a size and configuration that would constitute a suitable agricultural parcel.

BOARD of DIRECTORS - REGULAR AGENDA

January 15, 2014 - Item E.2

Agricultural Land Commission Application

13-0274-F-ALR (Schalin c/o W.E. Maddox) Page 7

The proposal is also consistent with the provisions of the Regional District Homesite Severance

Policy as outlined below:

1. the owner has submitted documentation which demonstrates that he purchased the property prior to the enactment of the ALC Act on December 21, 1972;

2. the property is not owned by a limited company;

3. the proposed homesite lot would encompass an existing house, septic field, driveway and accessory building and would not impact the portion of the property currently used for agricultural purposes;

4. the proposed homesite lot is within the vicinity of existing small lots and is not near existing intensive agricultural operations;

5. the remainder lot would meet the minimum lot size standard of the N.U. zone;

The Regional District Policy states that minimum lot size for a homesite parcel being created should be 1 ha to reflect the minimum lot area requirements applicable to lots serviced with onsite septic tank effluent disposal systems. The Policy goes on to state that notwithstanding the minimum lot standard cited above, the maximum lot size for the parcel being created should be the smallest possible land area necessary to incorporate an existing residence; accessory residential buildings that are located in close proximity to the existing residence; and the access driveway, well and septic disposal system servicing the existing residence. Larger, vacant lots may also be approved where necessary in order to provide a suitable building site meeting the setback, site coverage and site servicing requirements. To address these matters, it is recommended that the application be supported on the condition that the area of the proposed homesite lot be reduced to 1 ha. In this regard, the applicant has not demonstrated a need to create a 1.2 ha lot except to note that the proposed lot would accommodate an existing shed. It appears that the shed could be accommodated within a 1 ha lot.

SUMMARY:

The subject application proposes to subdivide a 1.2 ha portion of the property located at 2807,

2843, and 2845 Enderby Mabel Lake Road for the purpose of creating a homesite lot under

Section 946 of the

Local Government Act

and Section 21(2) of the

Agricultural Land

Commission Act

. It is recommended that this application be supported as it generally complies with the Agricultural Policies of the Electoral Area “F” Official Community Plan, the Agricultural

Land Commission Homesite Severance Policy and the Regional District Homesite Severance

Policy. To fully address the Regional District Policy it is recommended that as a condition of supporting the application, the area of the proposed homesite be reduced to 1 ha.

REFERRALS:

The application was referred for comments to the following:

1. Electoral Area “F” Director

2. Electoral Area “F” Advisory Planning Commission

3. Electoral Area Advisory Committee

4. Building Inspection Department

No comments or concerns with respect to the subject application

5. Interior Health Authority

IHA will be assessing the application at subdivision stage to determine the suitability of onsite sewage disposal and/or onsite drinking water. A site plan, soils information, and drinking water information is required on smaller homesite severance lots.
