TAKE NOTICE that the Council of the Corporation of the Township of Laurentian Valley passed
By-Law No 2019-04-021 on the 16th day of April, 2019, under Section 34 of the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, c.P.13.
The purpose of the amendment is to rezone the subject lands to allow for an existing single detached dwelling (former church manse) to be located on an approximately 2675 square metre (0.51 acre) portion of the subject property to be severed from the existing church property.  The remaining approximately 4095 square metre (1.01 acre) retained lot would remain in a Community Facility (CF) zone but would be rezoned to recognize the existing building setbacks for the Church known locally as St. Peter’s Evangelical Lutheran Church.  The concurrent application for consent filed with the County of Renfrew Land Division Committee is File No. B142/18.
The effect of the amendment is to establish a Rural Residential-Exception Twelve (RR-E12) zone with special provisions to permit a minimum lot area of 2670 square metres and to rezone the severed lot from Community Facility (CF) to Rural Residential-Exception Twelve (RR-E12) as Item 1.  The effect of Item 2 of the amendments to establish a Community Facility-Exception Five (CF-E5) zone with special provisions to recognize the existing performance standards (setbacks) of the existing church location and rezone the proposed retained lot from Community Facility (CF) and Community Facility-Exception Five (CF-E5). 
The lands affected by the Amendment are located within Lot 6, Concession 10, in the geographic Township of Alice, in the Township of Laurentian Valley, with Item 1 (former manse) of the Amendment known municipally as 555 Borne Road, and Item 2 (St. Peter’s Evangelical Lutheran Church) known municipally as 533 Borne Road, as shown on the Key Map.
No oral submissions were made at the Public Meeting by members of the Public and no written submissions were received from the public.  No written submissions were received from Public Bodies other than comments from one indicating no objections.  The consideration of the comments did not change the content of the by-law which was passed as originally proposed.
AND TAKE NOTICE that any individual, corporation or public body may appeal to the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT) in respect of the By-law by filing no later than 4:00 p.m. on the 8th day of May, 2019, a notice of appeal with the Clerk of the Corporation of the Township of Laurentian Valley, which must set out the reasons for the appeal and must be accompanied by the prescribed fee of $300.00 payable to the Minister of Finance by certified cheque or money order.  The appeal must also be accompanied by the completed LPAT appeal form.  If you wish to appeal to the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT), a copy of an appeal form is available from the Tribunal website at or by contacting the Township.
A COPY of the amendment and any additional information relating to the Zoning By-law Amendment, is available for inspection during office hours at the Township Office.  Any questions related to the By-law should be directed to Lauree Armstrong, Township Planner.
Only individuals, corporations and public bodies may appeal a by-law to the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT).  A notice of appeal may not be filed by an unincorporated association or group.  However, a notice of appeal may be filed in the name of an individual who is a member of the association or the group on its behalf.
No person or public body shall be added as a party to the hearing of the appeal unless, before the by-law was passed, the person or public body made oral submissions at a public meeting or written submissions to the council or, in the opinion of the Tribunal, there are reasonable grounds to add the person or public body as a party.
