ZBA in ORM Countryside

On June 27 Council agenda there is a staff report recommending approval of a zoning bylaw amendment to facilitate a severance of property to create two lots at 3655 and 3653 Lloydtown Aurora Rd.  Realization of the proponents’ desire for the severance has been challenging as the property is on the Oak Ridges Moraine and accordingly is regulated by the Oak Ridges Moraine Conservation Plan. The latter seeks to restrict the carving up of larger lots and properties into small ones as such can lead to degradation of natural heritage features and reduces the viability of productive agriculture activities. Hence, there has been careful review of the proposal and modifications made since initial consultation in July 2019 and the statutory public meeting in January.   I am very comfortable with the staff recommendation to approve.
