Release of Draft Zoning By-Law

Draft Comprehensive Zoning By-law available for public comment

Property Owners and Interested Parties are invited to attend a Public Open House to discuss the preparation of the new Township of Huron-Kinloss Zoning By-Law Under Sections 26 and 34 of the Planning Act

The Township of Huron-Kinloss is conducting a comprehensive review of its zoning by-law to ensure it reflects the Township’s new Official Plan. Zoning by-laws are legal documents that divide the Township into different land-use zones, specifying permitted uses (e.g. agricultural or residential) and required standards (e.g. building size and location).

The public drop-in session is scheduled, to give the public an opportunity to review and ask questions about the first draft of the new zoning by-law.


Saturday, September 9, 2017

10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Ripley Huron Community Centre, Auditorium

21 Queen Street, Ripley

Any person may attend the public drop-in session and make written and/or verbal representation either in support of, or in opposition to, the above noted proposal. Comments submitted to or prior to October 3, 2017 will be considered in the preparation of the final draft zoning by-law.

If you wish to be notified of any public meeting and/or the adoption of the new zoning by-law, you must make a written request and submit your name and contact information to the email address noted above.

If a person or public body does not make oral submissions at a public meeting or make a written submission prior to approval/refusal of the new zoning by-law, the person or public body is not entitled to appeal the decision to the Ontario Municipal Board, and may not be added as a party to the hearing of an appeal unless there are reasonable grounds in the opinion of the Board.
