Community Heads-up (message from City of Ottawa):
Please be advised that on November 12, 2019, the City of Ottawa received a Plan of Subdivision and Zoning By-Law Amendment application for 2701 Longfields Drive (Application D02-02-19-0134 & D07-16-19-0031)
The subject area is 10.6 hectares of the 73-hectare Stonebridge Gold Course, located along the western side of Longfields Drive, northwest of Prince of Wales Drive. The proposed development is intended to accommodate a mix of detached and townhouse dwellings totalling 183 dwelling units, as well as a 0.726-hectare neighbourhood park block. The park block is proposed at the entrance to the subdivision, where Longfields Drive and Kilspindie Ridge intersect. Holes 5, 6, and 7 of the Stonebridge Golf Course are to be reconfigured as part of the development concept.
The zoning amendment is proposed to change the zoning from “Parks and Opens Space Zone” Subzone A (O1A) to “Residential Third Density” Subzone YY (R3YY) and “Parks and Open Space” (O1).
The full application and all supporting documents can be found here. The comment period runs until Jan 17, 2020.
UPDATE – Dec 31,2019 (also posted on social media):
A few notes: Members of the SCA and SWG are reviewing the development application to ensure it meets the spirit of the LOI. Not everyone is currently available given the time of year but we do plan to issue a short statement at some point in the coming week(s). Regarding the 158 vs 183 homes, please note that all official SCA documents always stated either “approximately 158” or “~158” (where the “~” signifies “approximately”). That being said, we are carefully reviewing other elements in this development application to ensure there are no unreasonable variations. Individual residents are welcome to review the application and submit their own comments to the City of Ottawa lead on this file at the following link: https://app01.ottawa.ca/postingplans/appDetails.jsf…
