I, Rebekah Msuya-Collison, Clerk of the Municipality of South Huron hereby certify that the notice for By-law #35-2021 passed by the Council of the Municipality of South Huron on the 17th day of May, 2021 was given in a manner and form to the prescribed persons or public bodies as required by Section 34(18) of The Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990.

I also certify that the twenty (20) day appeal period expired on the 10th day of June, 2021, to this date no notice of appeal of By-law #35-2021 has been filed.

The Zoning By-law Amendment will not come into force until the Official Plan Amendment (OPA 21) is approved by the County of Huron, in accordance with Section 43(21) of the Planning Act.

Purpose and Effect

Official Plan Amendment No. 21 to the South Huron Official Plan and its associated Zoning By-law Amendment Application Z03-2021 to the South Huron Zoning By-law 69-2018 affect the lands legally described as the East Part of Lot 25, Concession 7, Usborne Ward, Municipality of South Huron. The subject lands are municipally known as 41351 MacDonald Road.

Now that the sand resource has been depleted on this property, the property owner rehabilitated the pit to an agricultural use as required by the aggregate license and has subsequently surrendered the license. The application proposes to update the designation of the property to reflect its current status and plans for use agriculturally and as a woodlot going forward.

The subject lands are currently designated Mineral Aggregate in the South Huron Official Plan. The approximately 3 hectare woodlot in the southeast corner of the property is proposed to be designated “Natural Environment” to match its existing use while the balance of the lands which have been rehabilitated to agriculture would have an Agriculture designation.

The concurrent Zoning By-law Amendment proposes a zone change from the existing ER1 (Extractive Resources) zone to AG1 (General Agriculture) and NE2 (Natural Environment) zones to match the proposed designation changes on the property.
