Road Allowances

Shoreline Road Allowance

The Township offers for sale the 66 foot shoreline road allowance only to the property owner whose land is separated from the lake by this allowance. Please note that if there is a portion between the 66 foot shoreline road allowance and the property owner's lot that is owned by the Crown (Ministry of Natural Resources), this portion must be purchased through the Ministry of Natural Resources prior to proceeding with the municipal shoreline road allowance purchase. This is usually evident at the time the survey is completed. It is strongly recommended that the municipality review any existing surveys or new draft surveys to determine if they are satisfactory for the application.
