Re:     Zoning By-Law Amendment Application File #: Z06-2021

Location:     Part Lots 764 and 884, Plan 376, and including Plan 22M-19, Exeter Ward, Municipality of South Huron (70 Church Street)

Owner:         Buckingham Estates Ontario Ltd.

Agent:          Monteith Brown Planning Consultants (c/o Jay McGuffin)


Please be advised that Council of the Municipality of South Huron passed By-law #85-2021 on the 20th day of December, 2021 under Section 34 of the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, as amended.

Purpose and Effect

This Zoning By-law Amendment affects the property described as Part Lots 764 and 884, Plan 376, and including Plan 22M-19, Exeter Ward, Municipality of South Huron.

The Zoning By-law amendment proposes to change the provisions of the existing R1-14 (Residential Low Density- Special Zone) zoning on the property to reflect the smaller zone area of nine interior lots in phase 1 of the plan of subdivision (Plan 22M-19). The revised R1-14 zone provisions reduce the zone area for interior properties from 420 square metres to 410 square metres.

The Zoning By-law amendment also proposes to change the zoning of the land containing the existing sewage pumping station to the U (Utility) zone to reflect its use. In addition, a large portion of the OS (Open Space) zone at the west end of the property is proposed to be rezoned to R1-14 (Residential Low Density – Special Zone) to reflect its use for residential lots in the concurrent application to amend the draft plan of subdivision approval.

This By-law amends Zoning By-law # 69-2018 of the Municipality of South Huron. 

Effect of Written and Oral Submissions

The planning report was presented with a recommendation to Council. There were no comments received from the public on this application. Comments were received from the Ausable Bayfield Conservation authority and the Huron Perth Catholic District School Board who had no objection.
