Addington Highlands Council

by Jeff Green

Roy Jackson appeared before an Addington Highlands Council meeting in Denbigh seeking to have his 900- metre seasonally maintained cottage road maintained year round.

There are certain obligations on property owners who seek to have this kind of change made in the AH official plan, one of which is that the property have a septic system in place, which Jackson does not have. Jackson will be investing in a septic system and the matter will come back to the roads committee. Meanwhile the roads superintendent will determine how much it will cost the township to offer him this service. The Official Plan states that the township cannot be brought into financial hardship by taking this kind of step.

Comprehensive Zoning Bylaw - Comments have been received from Quinte Conservation regarding the draft comprehensive zoning bylaw. Council had hoped to have the bylaw in place before the end of their term, but that is now unlikely to happen.
