The Township shall consider the sale of 66 foot unopened Municipal Road Allowances. Each application shall be dealt with on its own merit, subject to, but not limited to, the following criteria:

  • Requirement for future use of allowance by Township
  • Requirement for public access
  • Site specific based on hardship
  • Existing encroachment on municipal lands
  • Requirement for additional lands where necessary to comply with zoning by-law
  • Protection of wetland areas
  • Negative impact to abutting landowner (i.e. Buffer Zone)
  • 33' offered to abutting landowner
  • Applications shall be circulated to Federal and Provincial Agencies as deemed appropriate

Note: The Provincial Policy Statement strongly discourages the sale of any road allowances leading to water and Council must follow the recommendation of the PPS whenever possible.
