Rezoning 

41168 & 41130 Thames Road

File Number: Z04-2022

Address: 41168 & 41130 Thames Road 

Owner: Matt and Sarah Meidema

Applicant: Stewart Findlater 

Purpose and Effect: The lands to be rezoned are currently zoned AG3 (Agricultural Commercial-Industrial) and AG1 (General Agriculture). The AG1 zoned lands are the subject of a separate consent application that proposes to sever the lands from the remainder of the farm and merge them with the AG3 zoned lands. The AG3 zoned lands currently contain an abattoir with retail meat sales (Miedema Country Meats). The lands are proposed to be rezoned to a special AG3 zone (AG3-9) to allow for both an expansion of the existing business and permit an accessory house at a reduced separation distance of 60 meters from the abattoir on the same property rather than the 183 minimum separation currently required. A -H holding zone symbol is attached to the AG1 lands being rezoned to prevent those lands from being used for a residence until all the Municipal conditions related to the associated severance application have been met.
