By-law No. 25-08-2018 a by-law to amend the municipal plan numbered 25-2010 of the Town of Beresford

The purpose of the amendments to the Zoning By-law is as follows;

1. Amend provisions concerning the development of recreational vehicles sites in the Type-1 Coastal Zones – Cl-1 Zones. Under this zoning amendment, the number of recreational vehicles allowed on vacant or developed lots in the Cl-1 Zones (Beresford dune) will be similar to the number of recreational vehicles allowed on lots located elsewhere in the municipality along the coast which was the object of a rezoning in 2017 under by-law 25-06-2017. Acquired rights for owners whose number of recreational vehicles is greater than the number proposed under this amendment are protected. 

2. Correct a surface error as to vacant lots on RV type overlay area zones. Paragraph 79.01 (1) (b), the norm should have been 4 000 square meters rather than 2 000 square meters as mentioned in by-law 25-06-2017.

3. Modify certain zoning provisions to allow backyard hens for single-unit dwellings, two-unit dwellings, mini-homes and mobile-homes. The zoning provisions are also revised to allow the developments of apiaries. 

4. Allow the development of an artificial pond on the property located on 666 Baie Street bearing property identification number PID 20861670. Under the provisions of article 42 of the zoning by-law, an artificial pond can only be developed through rezoning. 

5. Modify a certain number of zoning provisions to correct certain typographical errors and interpretations. In particular, new definitions are proposed for words “construction company” and “car salesman.”
