No person or public body shall be added as a party to the hearing of the appeals unless, before the by-law was passed, the person or public body made oral submissions at a public meeting or written submissions to the council or, in the opinion of the Ontario Land Tribunal, there are reasonable grounds to add the person or public body as a party.

The Council of the Corporation of the Town of Petawawa passed a Comprehensive Zoning By-law (By-law 456/07) on October 15, 2007.

A Zoning By-law is a legal document, required by the province through the Planning Act, that implements the objectives and policies of a municipality’s official plan, provides a legal way of managing land use and future development, and protects residents from conflicting and possibly dangerous land uses. It describes exactly how land may be used; where buildings and other structures can be located; the types of buildings that are permitted and how they may be used; and the lot sizes and dimensions, parking requirements, building heights and setbacks from the street.

THE PURPOSE AND EFFECT of the open house and public meeting is to consider the proposed draft Comprehensive Zoning By-law which proposes to update the provisions of the By-law to conform to the Town’s Official Plan and be consistent with provincial policy, conform to the County of Renfrew Official Plan, and to ensure that the Zoning By-law responds to the community’s needs.

The Zoning By-law Update applies to all the lands within the Town of Petawawa, as such no location map is provided.
Council considered all written and oral submissions received on this application, the effect of which helped Council to make an informed decision.

NOTE: One of the purposes of the Planning Act is to provide for planning processes that are open, accessible, timely and efficient. Accordingly, all written submissions, documents, correspondence, e-mails or other communications (including your name and address) form part of the public record and will be disclosed/made available by the Municipality to such persons as the Municipality sees fit, including anyone requesting such information. Accordingly, in providing such information, you shall be deemed to have consented to its use and disclosure as part of the planning process.

Dated at the Town of Petawawa this 10th day of November 2021.
