Variance Application for 1934 Bel-Air Drive
We are writing to inform you of an exciting construction project proposed at 1934 Bel-Air Drive. At Amsted, we strive to deliver designs that are personalized to the site and the owner, while respecting and maintaining the established community character. The current residents are making improvements to the space and function of their home. To accomplish these changes, while protecting the existing heritage architecture, the footprint will be expanded to one side. In order to permit this work, the Committee of Adjustment of the City of Ottawa must give permission for a small reduction of the side yard setback. The position of the house on the site also necessitates a variance of the rear yard setback to allow for the proposed wall to be built in line with the existing. We have submitted the application to the Committee of Adjustment and you may have received a letter from the City of Ottawa inviting you to the upcoming virtual hearing. Prior to the formal committee hearing, we would like to offer the opportunity to discuss your concerns and answer any questions you may have about the design. In the absence of our usual open house meeting, please feel free to contact us directly and we’ll do our best to assist.
Thank you for your interest,
Sincerely, Christopher Mulholland
