Each year, our local Georgian Triangle Association of REALTORS®, (GTAR) invite a panel of our local municipality’s planners to update our members about current events in their geographic areas. Over the next few weeks, The Collingwood Blue Mountain Real Estate Blog will post summaries from these discussions.

Planners Part 1 –  Rob Armstrong, Director of Planning and Building Services, Municipality of Meaford

Rob told us that Meaford has adopted urban design standards, and a Heritage Conservation District Plan.  Year-to-date building stats are down over last year (2010.)  The Health Unit is getting out of the business of septic approvals – now application must be made to the Municipality.

The consolidated zoning by-law and related maps are all online now on the Meaford website, as well as other important documents such as their Official Plan and a Development Summary complete with interactive maps.

When summarizing current development activity, Rob mentioned:

Meaford Haven – with 400+ residential units, a senior’s home and a commercial component, this is the largest development in Meaford’s history.

Meaford Highlands Resort – 350 acres on the 3rd line which is in preconsultation stage.

Meaford Legion Development – 4 storey building with 3 levels of units plus the legion – zoning has been approved – expected to proceed in 2012

Gates of Kent – another 30 units will be built

Downtown – 2 major intensification projects are being considered

Wind Turbines:

  • MinnieHill – application for single turbine has been withdrawn.
  • Silcote Corners – near the tank range in Meaford – this is still an active file, but it is on hold a the moment as the FIT application has not yet been approved.
