Chairperson Robinson can now take 3 months or more to render his decision, well informed.
Action Champlain wishes to inform all residents of the Township of Champlain and the United Counties of Prescott and Russell (CUPR) of the steps taken to combat the decision to approve the Amendment No. 30 of CUPR’s Official Plan, an amendment requested by Colacem Canada Inc. to enable it to construct a cement plant on land adjacent to its quarry on the Country Road # 17.
It is clear that all those who were present at the February 9th information session, approximately 150 people, were unanimous in appealing the decision of the United Counties of Prescott and Russell (UCPR) before the Ontario Municipal Board to ensure that the rights of citizens are respected.
The appeal application will be filed with the Ontario Municipal Board on February 21, 2017. Action Champlain works very closely with professionals (lawyers, town planners and experts) in order to properly prepare the required documents.
