The first R3 Exception zone will be to increase the maximum lot coverage for a two storey dwelling from 40% to approximately 45%, and to reduce the required rear yard setback from 7.5 m to approximately 6.0 m.
 
The second R3 Exception zone will modify provisions of the Zoning By-law such as, but not limited to, decrease the required lot frontage for an apartment dwelling from 30.0 m to approximately 22.8 m, to reduce the required front yard setback for an apartment from 7.5 m to approximately 6.0 m and to reduce the interior side yard setback for an apartment from 7.5 m to approximately 2.0 m.
