Ontario township settles with Capital Paving on gravel pit zoning changes

March 21, 2023  By Toronto Star

Township of Woolwich announced it has settled with Capital Paving on a zone change and Official Plan amendment application that will allow for a gravel pit at 1175 Forester Rd., 1195 Forester Rd., and 1472 Village View Rd.

Woolwich, Ont. was debating Capital Paving’s application in 2021 for the Shantz Station Pit, amid fierce resident opposition but the applicant got tired of waiting for the township to make a decision and appealed to the Ontario Land Tribunal for its zone change application that would allow the pit to go forward.

Provincial legislation required Woolwich Township to respond to Capital Paving within 90 days on its application for a zoning bylaw amendment and within 120 days on its application for an Official Plan amendment. Earlier this month the township announced it had settled with Capital Paving.
