Colville-Reeves v. Jobin

Location:

Muskoka/Parry Sound/Haliburton


Subject:

Residential Development, Shoreline Development, Zoning By-law Amendments


Court:

Ontario Municipal Board


Application/issue:

A motion requesting to adjourn a hearing, which would allow the Moving Party sufficient time to measure certain elements along the shoreline of the Respondent’s lakefront property. This matter involved an appeal of a decision by the Town of Gravenhurst to amend Zoning By-law 95-54 to permit the construction of a 12.5 metre dock. The appellant states that the dock is a safety hazard to boaters as it is located in a “Narrow Waterway.”


Held:

Motion dismissed


Reasons:

The Board finds that the accuracy of the measurements that they had received with the application for the building permit for the boathouse were satisfactory, and therefore the Moving Party will not be prejudiced if the hearing goes ahead as scheduled. Hearing is scheduled for one day only.
