THE CORPORATION OF THE TOWNSHIP OF LAURENTIAN VALLEY

TAKE NOTICE that the Council of the Corporation of the Township of Laurentian Valley passed

By-Law No. 2017-06-024 on the 20th day of June, 2017 under Sections 34 and 36 of the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, c.P.13.

PURPOSE, EFFECT & LOCATION OF ZONING BY-LAW AMENDMENT (Application File # Z-2017-06)

The purpose of the amendment is to rezone lands to satisfy conditions of approval for County of Renfrew Application for Consent File No. B99/16. The proposed severed lot is occupied by an existing dwelling that is surplus to the needs of the owner who is a farmer with additional lands in the area. As the area of the farm property which is occupied by the existing dwelling is zoned Extractive Industrial Reserve (EMR) an amendment is required to rezone the area of the severed lot to recognize the location of the existing dwelling and to identify that those lands are not suitable for extraction. The retained lot is required to be rezoned to prohibit residential uses on the agricultural lands and to prohibit the existing structures which are used for equipment storage from being used for livestock or manure storage in the future due to their proximity to the surplus farm dwelling.

The effect of the amendment is to establish an Agriculture-Exception Twenty-Two (A-E22) zone to prohibit residential uses and to rezone the area of the retained lot that is currently zoned Agriculture (A) to Agriculture-Exception Twenty-Two-holding (A-E22-h). The effect of the amendment is to also establish an Extractive Industrial Reserve-Exception Three (EMR-E3) zone to prohibit the use of the existing structures on the retained for Livestock or Manure Storage and to rezone the area of the retained lot that is currently Extractive Industrial Reserve (EMR) to Extractive Industrial Reserve-Exception Three-holding (EMR-E3-h) . The effect of the amendment is also to establish a Rural Residential-Exception Eleven (RR-E11) zone with special provisions to recognize the existing dwelling and establish a reduced setback for a dwelling from lands zoned Extractive Mineral Reserve (EMR) and to rezone the severed lot from Extractive Mineral Reserve (EMR) to Rural Residential-Exception Eleven-holding (RR-E11-h).

All of the subject lands are being rezoned to a holding zone where the principle of development would be established by this Amendment but the holding symbol would remain in place until the conditions for removal of the holding symbol as established by resolution of Council are met, including the entering into of a Development Agreement with the Township to provide notice related to the agriculture and potential aggregate uses in the area and to reinforce the prohibition on the use of the existing structures on the retained for livestock or manure storage.

The lands affected by the Amendment are located at 23 Mud Lake Road (County Road No.19) within Part Lots 4 and 5, Concession 1, geographic Township of Pembroke, in the Township of Laurentian Valley, as shown on the Key Map.

EFFECT OF PUBLIC CONSULTATION ON DECISION
