Council weighs Hastings Drive options

SIMCOE  - Windham Coun. Jim Oliver signalled last month that he wants to send the county solicitor to the Ontario Municipal Board with a game plan for Hastings Drive in Long Point. Simcoe Coun. Peter Black has responded with an attempt to bind the county in advance to provincial policy regarding hazard land uses. That policy states that dynamic, hazard-land areas are off-limits to new development and initiatives that encourage increased human activity. Cottage owners on Hastings Drive have appealed a county plan to allow increased recreational activity to the OMB. This includes camping and the parking of recreational vehicles on private lots. When the OMB agreed to hear the matter, Norfolk council directed its legal team to get the best deal possible for the county. Norfolk council didn’t know at the time that the OMB would grant standing to owners of vacant lots on Hastings. In light of this, Oliver wants to recall Norfolk’s legal counsel and provide objectives for when the hearing resumes. Coun. Oliver has tabled a motion to this effect. It will be aired at the Nov. 14 meeting of council.
