Variance to reduce the minimum setback for part of any sign to any parcel line from 1.0 metre to 0.41 metres.
This application is seeking a variance to allow for an existing commercial freestanding sign for EZ Storage to remain at its current location.

Proposed subdivision in Area C to allow for the sale of property
THAT Bylaw No. 2452.22, 2019, Electoral Area “C” Official Community Plan Amendment Bylaw and Bylaw No. 2453.37, 2019, Electoral Area “C” Zoning Amendment Bylaw be denied.
Purpose: To facilitate a subdivision (boundary adjustment) that will result in the creation of a 0.37 ha parcel.
Owners: Roger and Linda Lebert 730 Golden Currant Road
Legal: Lot 205, Plan 1789, District Lot 205, SDYD
OCP: Agriculture (AG) Proposed OCP: Small Holdings (SH)
Zone: Agriculture One Zone (AG1) Proposed Zoning: Small Holdings Five Zone (SH5)
Proposed Development: This application is seeking to facilitate a boundary adjustment (subdivision) between the properties at 730 Golden Currant Road and 5557 Dogwood Lane. This will result in a new 3,700 m2 parcel around the applicant’s homesite (730 Golden Currant Road) while consolidating the 3.37 ha remainder with the neighbouring parcel at 5557 Dogwood Lane (which will become 5.52 ha in area). In order to accomplish this, the following land use bylaw amendments are being proposed by the applicant:
· amend the land use designation under Schedule ‘B’ (OCP Map) of the Electoral Area “C” Official Community Plan (OCP) Bylaw No. 2452, 2008, from Agriculture (AG) to Small Holdings (SH) and
· amend the zoning under Schedule ‘2’ (Zoning Map) of the Electoral Area “C” Zoning Bylaw No. 2453, 2008, from Agriculture One Zone (AG1) to Small Holdings Five Zone (SH5). In support of the official community plan amendment and rezoning, the applicant has stated that “the reason we are seeking a rezoning is because our adjoining neighbours want to purchase our vineyard land to make their farm more viable. The remaining 0.37 ha parcel is adequate in size for our home, shop, septic field, garden and fruit trees.”
Site Context: Approximately 3.75 hectares in area, the subject property is located at the end of Golden Current Road and adjacent to the Town of Oliver at No. 2 Road and Dogwood Lane. The property is currently under cultivation (vineyard) and contains one (1) single detached dwelling and shop.
