COUNTY WINS FIGHT AGAINST CHANGES TO OFFICIAL PLAN 11/2/2018 8:49:18 AM
The County of Renfrew took a stand and appears to have won the battle. County councillors this week were shown an update to the official plan they felt was completely unacceptable. Warden Jennifer Murphy says within 24-hours they were able to get the Minister of Municipal Affairs to reconsider changes that the province was imposing on the county.
Murphy says the plan that was presented to county council would have added red tape and shut down Renfrew County for business by designating huge swaths of land as agricultural. The Warden says a date is being scheduled to speak with Minister Clark about the county's official plan.
