- Agent: Penny Crossan
- Location: 10125 McEwen Drive
- Roll No: 393900003022400
Purpose and Effect of the Applications:
The Municipality is seeking input on a development application within 120 metres of your property. The application would consider the re-zoning of the farm parcel from Agricultural (A1) to Agricultural-No Residence (A3) and the proposed non-farm parcel from Agricultural (A1) to Surplus Residence (SR) zone. This is related to an Application for Consent B-18/19 which was conditionally granted subject to, amongst other matters, an approved zoning by-law amendment.
The effect of this zoning by-law amendment application would prohibit any residential use on the farm parcel consistent with provincial policy and would recognize the residential use (single detached dwelling) in regards to the non-farm parcel.
