Council to Consider Changes to Second Draft OCP

Posted on

After its meeting on November 27, 2013, Cumberland Council, sitting as the Committee of the Whole, recommended a number of minor revisions to the second draft official community plan.

The most significant change would be the designation of a portion of Ulverston Avenue between Egremont Road and First Street from a road to “Institutional” on the “Future Land Use” Map A. This would accommodate the future closure of this portion of Ulverston Avenue as requested by School District 71.

The road closure is subject to public notice and an opportunity for those who believe they are affected by the proposed closure to make submissions to Council. This road closure process has not yet begun and is expected to take place in the new year.

Other recommended changes to the OCP that will be considered for ratification at the December 9th Council meeting include:

  • s. 1.1: replace “south” with “southwest”
  • s. 1.6: add “Carlisle Lane”
  • define the term “Village centre”
