This prehearing conference dealt with a proposal to build a quarry in the Township of Ryerson. He had made a two-pronged application – one under the Planning Act for rezoning, and another under the Aggregates Resources Act for a Class A quarry licence. The Township Council agreed to rezone, though conditionally. There were appeals of that Zoning By-law to the Ontario Municipal Board. There was also a referral by the Minister of Natural Resources, to the Board, of the licence matter under the Aggregates Resources Act. Issues include traffic/haul route, environmental concerns, compatibility, hydrogeology work, blasting, property values, and the special zoning provisions.
Application for a Class A License for the removal of aggregate.
License issued upon settlement
The parties had reached a settlement. The Board had received revised Site Plans and Site Plan Notes from the parties confirming the settlement has been properly implemented. Therefore, the Board directs the Minister of Natural Resources to issue a Class A, category 3 above the water table license for the property.
