Township of Terrace Bay Zoning By-law | pdf-32x32

TAKE NOTICE that the Council of the Corporation of the Township of Terrace Bay passed By-law 22-2016 on the 20th day of June, 2016 under Section 34 of the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. 13. (amended)

TAKE NOTICE that the Council of the Corporation of the Township of Terrace Bay passed By-law 10-2016 on the 7th day of March, 2016 under Section 34 of the Planning Act,  R.S.O. 1990, c. 13.

PURPOSE AND EFFECT: The purpose of the zoning by-law is to regulate the use of land, buildings and structures. The new By-law will replace the existing Zoning By-law and applies to all properties within the Township of Terrace Bay. The new By-law updates definitions and general provisions while retaining most of the zone regulations for lot area, setbacks, building heights and lot coverage from the previous by-law. New features of the By-law include provisions for secondary dwelling units in existing dwellings, provisions for green energy uses, barrier-free and bicycle parking standards, broader provisions for home based businesses and a more extensive list of permitted uses in the commercial and industrial zones. The effect is to enhance the opportunities for development in responding to the needs of a modern community. A key map is not provided because the by-law applies to all properties within the corporate boundaries of the Township of Terrace Bay.

APPEAL: The last date for filing a notice of appeal of the by-law is April 4, 2016. Any such appeal must be filed with the clerk of the municipality and must set out the reasons for the appeal and must be accompanied by the fee required by the Ontario Municipal Board. Only individuals, corporations and public bodies may appeal a by-law to the Ontario Municipal Board. 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 written submissions to the Council of the Township of Terrace Bay or, in the opinion of the Ontario Municipal Board, there are reasonable grounds to add the person or public body as a party.

Dated at the Township of Terrace Bay this 8th day of March, 2016.

Notice of Adoption of Official Plan – December 8, 2015 | pdf-32x32

The Township’s current Official Plan has been in effect since 1999 and requires updating in order to reflect current trends and conditions and to be in conformity with the 2005 Provincial Policy Statement, and a new zoning by-law is required to replace the 1985 zoning by-law and to conform with the Official Plan. Council is seeking input from the public on the policies proposed in the new Plan. Examples include: economic development; community improvement, the designation of lands for residential, commercial, industrial and waterfront development; the stewardship of natural resources such as minerals, mining and forestry; the conservation of wetlands, wildlife and fish habitat; and the preservation of archaeological and cultural heritage resources. A background document (the ‘Community Profile’) and the proposed land use schedules will also be available for public review. A draft zoning by-law will also be available with the intent of ensuring that there are new provisions to implement the new Plan. At the open house the public is encouraged to provide input to the planning consultant and municipal staff in an informal manner, and to provide written and oral comments or recommendations. Submissions by email and fax are also encouraged. The public meeting is a formal meeting on proposed changes to the Official Plan and Zoning By-law arising out of public and Provincial input and a review of the current Official Plan and Zoning By-law. Please mark your calendars and plan to attend both the open house and the public meeting.
