Please be advised that Council of the Municipality of South Huron passed By-law #86-2021 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 Lot 88, Part Lot 87, Plan 376, Exeter Ward, Municipality of South Huron.

The Zoning By-law amendment proposes to add R1-17 as a new Residential Low Density – Special Zone with the zoning of the subject lands changed to R1-17 to reflect its current use as a food bank. In addition to permitting a food bank, the special zone continues to permit the uses permitted by the property’s current R1-1 zoning. The subject land has been used as a food bank for 6 years as a permitted temporary use.

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 Huron Perth Catholic District School Board who did not have any concerns. Council reviewed all materials received on this application and has taken these submissions into consideration when making its decision.


Any person or agency may appeal to the Ontario Land Tribunal in respect of the by-law by filing with the Clerk of the Municipality of South Huron, not later than the 12th day of January, 2022, a notice of appeal setting out the objection to the by-law and the reasons in support of the objection, accompanied by the prescribed fee payable to the Minister of Finance by certified cheque or money order. The appeal must also be accompanied by the completed Appellant Form which is available from the Tribunal web site at or by contacting South Huron.

Only individuals, corporations, and public bodies may appeal a zoning by-law to the Ontario Land Tribunal.  A notice of appeal may not be filed by an unincorporated association or group.  However, a notice of appeal may be filed in the name of an individual who is a member of the association or the group on its behalf.

No person or public body shall be added as a party to the hearing of the appeal unless, before the by-law was passed, the person or public body made oral submissions at a public meeting or made written submissions to the Municipality of South Huron or, in the opinion of the Ontario Land Tribunal, there are reasonable grounds to add the person or public body as a party.
