The purpose of the applications is to:

The northern portion of the subject site is currently designated Residential and does not require an amendment to the Oshawa Official Plan to facilitate the proposed development.

Amend Zoning By-law 60-94 by rezoning the lands from R2 (Residential) and GI (General Industrial) to an appropriate R6-B (Residential) Zone to implement the proposed development with site specific conditions to permit certain performance standards such as, but not limited to, increased lot coverage, reduced interior side yard and rear yard depths, reduced landscaped open space and reduced required parking.
