Plan of Subdivision for 2970 Fesserton Side road - Township of Severn

​​​​​County File: SV-T-2102

Applicant: 2801829 Ontario Inc.

Subject Lands: 2970 Fesserton Side road, in the Township of Severn, County of Simcoe

The County of Simcoe has recently received a complete application for a proposed draft plan of subdivision for the above described subject lands. 


Applications for Draft Plan of Subdivision and Zoning By-law Amendment (“ZBA") for the property, municipally addressed as 2970 Fesserton Side road, and more specifically known as Block 18 on Plan 51M-917 of the 'Georgian Heights Subdivision", in the Township of Severn (hereafter referred to as “the Subject Lands"), have been received by the County of Simcoe and the Township of Severn.

The applicant proposes to rezone  and subdivide  the  Subject  Lands  to  facilitate  the  creation  of  14  single  detached  lots, and environmental easement, and  two stormwater management blocks. The proposed lots and blocks will have frontage on a proposed new road that would have access off Fesserton Side road. The proposed dwellings would be privately serviced by individual well and septic.

The Subject Lands are located within the Fesserton Settlement Area in the Township of Severn, east of Highway 400, west of County Road 16 and north of Fesserton Side road.  The subject lands are approximately 10.23 ha (25.3 acres) with approximately 20m frontage along Fesserton Side road. 

The Subject Lands are designated “Settlements" on Schedule 5.1 Land Use Designations in the County of Simcoe Official Plan (“County OP") and as “Country Residential" in the Township of Severn's Official Plan (“Township OP").   

The proposal is seeking County approval for a Draft Plan of Subdivision to further subdivide Block 18 of the original 'Georgian Heights Subdivision".

The applicant is seeking the Township of Severn's approval to rezone the Subject Lands from Estate Residential (ER) and Environmental Protection (EP) in the Township's Zoning By-law 2010-65 (“the By-law") to  Residential Type One zone  with a  site-specific exception (R1-X)  . The ZBA would  also  rezone  a  portion  of  the  property from  Environmental  Protection  to Open Space (OS) zone for the stormwater management ponds and Environmental Protection (EP) zone to respect the existing drainage ditch traversing the site.

County of Simcoe staff has commenced review of the application and will circulate the application materials to the prescribed persons, public agencies and aboriginal communities for review and comment.

Please note that the statutory public meeting is yet to be scheduled. However, a Notice of Application will be issued by the Township when the public meeting is scheduled.

If you wish to be notified of the Decision of the County of Simcoe in respect of the proposed draft plan of subdivision, you must make a written request to the County of Simcoe Planning Department, Administration Centre, 1110 Highway 26, Midhurst, Ontario L9X 1N6, identifying County File Number SV-T-2102.
