Pilgrim's Rest,Draft Plan Proposal been assigned file number ZA-09-18.

Location
The subject lands are composed of two separate parcels. The first is referenced as the “Mainland Property” where Pilgrim’s Rest Campground is located. The second parcel is referenced as the “Island Property”.

A key map is attached below which indicates the location of the lands which are subject to the applications at Part of Lots 3 and 4, Concession 11, Burleigh Ward, Township of North Kawartha.

Purpose and Effect of the Applications
The purpose and effect of the applications would permit a vacant land condominium on a portion of the subject property.  The vacant land condominium application would create 30 vacant building lots with an average lot size of 0.51 hectares (1.3 acres).  Each lot is to contain one single detached (seasonal) dwelling.  The proposal also includes the creation of 7 common element blocks for internal private roads (Blocks 2 & 3), open space areas (Blocks 4 to 7) and a recreational area (Block 1).  The recreational area consists of the existing beach area, boat launch and docks for Pilgrim’s Rest Campground.  These facilities will remain and form part of the shared common elements.

The Official Plan currently designates these lands as “Rural” and “Recreational Commercial”.  Given that the current land use designations do not recognise the proposed development, the Official Plan Amendment will have the effect of changing the land use designation to a Site Specific Special Seasonal Residential designation to facilitate the development of the subject lands via vacant land plan of condominium as described above.  The remainder of the property consisting of open space blocks will be placed into the “Environmental Constraint Area” designation.

The Township of North Kawartha Comprehensive Zoning By-law #26-2013 currently zones the Mainland Property as “Rural (RU)”, “Environmental Constraint (EC)” and “Provincially Significant Wetland”. The Island Property is currently zoned “Shoreline Residential Island (SRI)” Zone.  The proposed zoning by-law amendment is intended to rezone the area proposed for redevelopment for 30 residential lots to a Site Specific Shoreline Residential Zone. The recreational area (Block 1) will be rezoned to a Site Specific Major Open Space Zone to recognize the recreation facilities as shared elements. The remainder of the property will either be rezoned to or maintained within the EC Zone (Block 4 to 7).
