NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETING CONCERNING AN UPDATE TO THE TOWNSHIP'S COMPREHENSIVE ZONING BY-LAW
TAKE NOTICE that the Council of The Corporation of the Township of Whitewater Region will hold a second statutory public meeting on Wednesday October 18, 2023, at 4:45 p.m., at the Whitewater Region Municipal Office, 44 Main Street, Cobden, Ontario, to consider the proposed Comprehensive Zoning Bylaw Update, pursuant to Section 34 of the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, c.P.13.
The proposed new Comprehensive Zoning By-law document will apply to all lands within the Township of Whitewater Region. As such, no Key Map has been provided.
In 2021, the Township of Whitewater Region and the Township of Greater Madawaska began a joint effort to consolidate and update their Zoning By-law documents in accordance with recently approved Provincial policy updates.
The Township’s Zoning By-law regulates how land may be used, where buildings and structures can be located, lot sizes, setback requirements, building heights and parking requirements. In addition to a new text document, the update will also include the introduction of Zoning Schedules (maps) that identify zones across each municipality.
If a person or public body would otherwise have an ability to appeal the decision of the Council of the Township of Whitewater Region to the Ontario Land Tribunal but the person or public body does not make oral submissions at a public meeting or make written submissions to the Township of Whitewater Region before the by-law is passed, the person or public body is not entitled to appeal the decision.
If a person or public body does not make oral submissions at a public meeting or make written submissions to the Township of Whitewater Region before 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 Land Tribunal unless, in the opinion of the Tribunal, there are reasonable grounds to do so.
If you wish to be notified of the decision of the Township of Whitewater Region on the proposed zoning by-law amendment and future Comprehensive Zoning By-law, you must make a written request to the person at the address or email address provided below.
For more information about this matter, including information about appeal rights, contact the person below. Additional information relating to the proposed Zoning By-law Amendment and Comprehensive Zoning By-law, including this Public Notice and the draft ZBA text is available for inspection at the Township Office in Cobden during regular office hours (see address below) or on the Township website at https://www.whitewaterregion.ca/projects/current-projects/comprehensive-zoning-by-law/.
Dated at the Township of Whitewater Region this 9th day of June, 2023.
