Public Meeting Notice - County of Perth Official Plan on June 23, 2015

Posted by Planning Dept on Wednesday, June 3rd, 2015

TAKE NOTICE that the Council of the Corporation of the County of Perth will hold a Public Meeting on June 23, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. at the Sebringville Community Centre (302 Huron Road, Sebringville) to hear input from interested persons/parties concerning the existing County of Perth Official Plan policies regarding surplus farm dwelling severances.

The surplus farm dwelling policy was discussed by Council as part of the County of Perth’s Five Year Review of its Official Plan. The current Official Plan policy prohibits the severance of surplus farm dwellings from farm properties (see below). The Public Meeting will serve as a venue for the public to bring forward any comments regarding the current policy:

5.6.3 Residential Use
Consents for the severance of lots for residential use on lands within the "Agriculture" designation shall be prohibited. This includes the creation of all new non-farm related residential lots and the severance of existing farm dwellings (principal dwelling, supplementary dwellings, mobile homes, garden suites), and surplus farm dwellings.”

ANY PERSON may attend the Public Meeting and/or make written or verbal representation either in support of, or in opposition to, Council’s decision to have Section 5.6.3 of the County of Perth Official Plan remain unchanged. Written communications should be sent to the County of Perth Planning and Development Department (Attention: Allan Rothwell).

If you wish to be notified of any further action relating to this policy you must make a written request to the Clerk of the County of Perth (Jillene Bellchamber-Glazier).
