The Proposal:

Proposed Amendment Number: PS 215 18

The Township of Clearview proposes to amend the NEP by adding a special policy to apply to the road allowance of sideroad 26/27 between Osprey-Clearview Townline and Concession 10, being Part of Lots 26 and 27, Concessions 11 and 12. The Township’s amendment application relates to a Development Permit Application (DPA) to permit the re-constructions of the road (including expansion and vertical re-alignment) to make it an all-season road, pursuant to a Road Improvement Agreement between the Township of Clearview, Walker Aggregates Inc., and the County of Simcoe.

The purpose of the Township’s proposed Plan amendment is to allow the proposed road improvements, notwithstanding policies in the NEP which require the consideration of alternatives for the development of infrastructure in wetlands, in key natural heritage features, and in Escarpment Natural Areas.
