By-Law No. 2019-12-062 on the 10th day of December, 2019 under Section 34 of the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, c.P.13.
 
PURPOSE, EFFECT & LOCATION OF ZONING BY-LAW AMENDMENT (Application File No. Z-2019-08)
The purpose of the amendment is to amend the provisions of the Rural-Exception Sixty-Eight (RU-E68) zone to permit the use of the subject property for a special events business, i.e. weddings and celebrations, and also for summer camp and educational activities, as accessory uses to the existing single detached residential dwelling. The proposal is to make use of the property and also to convert an existing 130 m2 detached accessory building for use as part of the venue for the special events business to be operated as a home based business on an approximately 2.23 hectare (5.50 acre) lot.
 
The effect of the amendment is to change the provisions of the Rural-Exception Sixty-Eight (RU-E68) to add a special events business accessory to an existing single detached dwelling as a permitted use, including the use of a detached structure(s) and to delete the provisions established by a previous owner that would have permitted a yoga studio in a detached structure as a home occupation.
 
The lands affected by the Amendment are located at 530 Drive-In Road (County Road No. 29), in Part of Lot 11, Concession 1, being in Parts 1, 2 and 3 on plan 49R-11052 in the geographic Township of Pembroke, in the Township of Laurentian Valley, as shown on the Key Map.
 
EFFECT OF PUBLIC CONSULTATION ON DECISION
No oral submissions were made at the Public Meeting by members of the Public and no written submissions were received from the public.  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 31st of December, 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 http://elto.gov.on.ca/tribunals/lpat/forms/ or by contacting the Township.

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.
