Thompson v. Ministry of Natural Resources
This prehearing conference dealt with a proposal to build a quarry in the Township of Ryerson. He had made a two-pronged application – one under the Planning Act for rezoning, and another under the Aggregates Resources Act for a Class A quarry licence. The Township Council agreed to rezone, though conditionally. There were appeals of that Zoning By-law to the Ontario Municipal Board. There was also a referral by the Minister of Natural Resources, to the Board, of the licence matter under the Aggregates Resources Act. Issues include traffic/haul route, environmental concerns, compatibility, hydrogeology work, blasting, property values, and the special zoning provisions.
Hearing is set for future date
