WHAT ARE THE PROPOSED CHANGES?
The Official Plan Amendment proposes to re-designate a portion of the subject property from Rural to Extractive Industrial ‘A’ Area, with a small southeast portion of the property re-designated to Environmental Policy Area. Similarly, the Zoning By-law Amendment proposes to re-zone a portion of the property from Agriculture (A1) to Extractive Industrial with Exceptions (MX-X) with a southeast portion of the property re-zoned from Environmental Policy Area 2 (EPA2) to Environmental Policy Area 1 Exception 487 (EPA1-487).
The purpose of these applications is to facilitate a new gravel pit operation referred to as the “Limebeer Pit” which will permit aggregate extraction above the groundwater table, at a maximum annual rate of up to 1,000,000 tonnes per year. The proposed Limebeer Pit will function as a physical expansion of the existing licenced gravel pit (Caledon Main Pit) adjacent to the subject property. Aggregate extracted from the Limebeer Pit will therefore be processed and distributed via the existing processing area and inter-pit haul route contained within the Caledon Main Pit.
Visit www.caledon.ca/limebeer to review the proposed Official Plan and Zoning By-law Amendments and additional information and material about the proposed applications. Copies of these documents will also be available to the public prior to the meeting at the Development Approval and Planning Policy Department at Town Hall. Office hours are Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
If a person or public body does not make oral submissions at a public meeting or make written submissions to The Corporation of the Town of Caledon before the proposed Official Plan Amendment is adopted and the By-law is passed, the person or public body is not entitled to appeal the decision of The Corporation of the Town of Caledon to the Ontario Municipal Board.
If a person or public body does not make oral submissions at a public meeting, or make written submissions to The Corporation of the Town of Caledon before the proposed Official Plan Amendment is adopted and the By-law is passed, the person or public body may not be added as a party to the hearing of an appeal before the Ontario Municipal Board unless, in the opinion of the Board, there are reasonable grounds to do so.
