Recycling Specialties Inc. v. AAA Professional Self Storage Inc.

Location:

Greater Golden Horseshoe


Subject:

Industrial Development, Official Plan Amendments, Zoning By-law Amendments


Court:

Ontario Municipal Board


Application/issue:

This was a hearing in relation to appeals filed by AAA Professional Self Storage Inc. against decisions on applications for an Official Plan Amendment and Zoning By-law Amendment filed by Recycling Specialties Inc. in the Town of Midland. The applications would permit a facility to receive and sort construction waste (concrete, drywall, etc.). The issues included compatibility with surrounding uses, sufficiency of environmental and traffic studies, and appropriate mitigation.


Held:

Appeals allowed in part; OPA modified and approved; Zoning By-law approved


Reasons:

From the planner’s evidence, it was clear to the Board that the subject site is a suitable location for a Recycling Facility given the surrounding uses. Environmental features are not negatively impacted as a study to address natural features was properly completed. The proposed recycling facility will not be handling hazardous or organic materials.
