Senior Planner Trevor Houghton reviewed the details of the planning application and comments received to date.
 
The proposed Zoning By-law Amendment pertains to land located on the south side of Mountain Road and its intersection with the Tenth Line and is legally described as Part of Lot 44, Concession 10, Town of Collingwood, County of Simcoe and is addressed municipally as 200 Mountain Road, Collingwood.

THE PURPOSE AND EFFECT of the proposed Zoning By-law Amendment is to rezone the land from Industrial Park (M5) to an Industrial Park Exception Five (M5-5) zone.  The proposed M5-5 zoning would permit a brewery including uses accessory thereto such as, but not limited to, the retail sale of beer, ale, malt liquor, related products and promotional equipment, catering services and the preparation of food for consumption on a portion of the property.
 
Kristine Loft, Planning Consultant on behalf of the applicant, further reviewed the details of the application and requested Councils favourable consideration.

  • The protection of natural features and sensitive or vulnerable areas,
  • The requirement to provide loading or parking facilities,
  • The minimum and maximum density permitted on land,
  • To prohibit the use of land subject to the availability of municipal services, and
  • The use of maps to indicate what zone classification is applicable on land. 
THE PURPOSE AND EFFECT of the proposed Amendment is;
 
  1. To correct errors and omissions found in the text and on the maps of the Collingwood Zoning By-law; and
     
  2. To delete, revise or insert regulations and provisions into the Collingwood Zoning By-law.
As this proposed Amendment may result in modifications throughout the Collingwood Zoning By-law no key map has been included with this Notice.
