ZERO LOT LINE ZONING GOING TO PUBLIC HEARING

The Town of Cochrane has a received a Land Use Bylaw amendment application to allow zero lot line single-detached dwellings to be developed in certain new areas of Cochrane.

The application proposes to amend Cochrane’s Land Use Bylaw to create a direct control (DC-1) district to allow the opportunity for zero lot line single-detached dwellings to be developed in certain new areas of Cochrane.

Zero lot line single-detached dwellings are homes that are permitted to be built directly on one side-yard property line if there is a 1.5m maintenance easement on the other side. If approved, blocks containing zero lot line single-detached dwellings will require a comprehensive development permit and will also be required to comply with the Alberta Building Code.

The new DC-1 district is proposed for a short list of currently undeveloped locations in Riversong (Precedence), Fireside, Sunset Ridge and Heartland.

Zero lot line single-detached dwellings are already being built in other Alberta municipalities; the applicants have indicated that the new zoning is intended to add to the variety and prices of new homes for sale in Cochrane.

Town Council heard details about the proposal at their meeting October 13.

Town Council has set a public hearing for November 9 to gather feedback on the proposal. The public hearing gives the community an opportunity to hear more and share their comments with Council before the proposal returns to Council for deliberation and decision at a future date.
