Tomlinson wins appeal for Napanee, Ont. asphalt plant

January 8, 2024  By Rock to Road Staff

NAPANEE, Ont. – R.W. Tomlinson Ltd. has successfully appealed a zoning bylaw from the Town of Greater Napanee that previously prevented the construction of a permanent hot mix asphalt plant at the company’s Napanee quarry.

The 56-page long decision, dated Dec. 22 2023, was delivered by Ontario Land Tribunal member Dale Chipman, and allows the property to be used as the site of a permanent asphalt plant and a ready-mix concrete plant.

Through comprehensive public and agency consultation, the tribunal determined that the proposed asphalt plant is compatible with the applicable planning and land use policies. The tribunal also concluded that potential impacts regarding dust, odour, noise and traffic can be minimized or mitigated with best practices and proper provincial and municipal requirements.

Arguments for and against this project and the required amendments were presented on Aug. 14, 2023, with closing submissions received Sept. 22, 2023 by video hearing.
