A daycare, a demolition, and a dojo get the nod from Paradise council

By Mark Squibb/January 6, 2022

Paradise council approved a number of applications during the public council meeting just prior to the Christmas break.

Deputy Mayor Kim Street, who chairs the planning and protective services committee, brought forward the motions, no two of which were alike, during the December 21 meeting.

The first was an application for a home-based animal boarding daycare on St. Thomas Line. A notice of discretionary use was advertised, and no objections were received.

Council approved the application unanimously, subject to 12 conditions,

Council also approved an application to demolish a home on Paradise Road and build a four unit dwelling in its place, subject to 10 conditions.

That application, however, was not without objections from the public.

“Two written objections were received,” noted Street. “The planning and protective services committee considered the matter and recommends approval for the development.”

Street noted the objections related to the possible height of the building, but assured council, and any residents watching the meeting online, that the height of the dwelling would be comparable to the height of an average home.

Council also approved an application for a new kickboxing training business at 1187 Kenmount Road subject to nine conditions.  That building currently houses business such as Paradise Bowl and Elite Dance.

Finally, council approved an application for a temporary sales office at Nicholas Quinn Place. The application was granted approval in November for a similar application, but the applicant wished to relocate the sales office to a different lot. That approval is subject to 12 conditions, and was unanimously granted by council.

As previously reported in The Shoreline, council, during that same meeting, rejected an application for a home-based doctors office on Kate Marie Place. Town staff received 21 written objections to the application.

Council also confirmed an order served on December 15 concerning a light installed on the front of a garage on Byrne’s Road.

“The light is causing a nuisance when illuminated to the neighboring property,” explained Street.

Council unanimously approved the order.
