County OPA 2 - Environmental Resource Recovery CentreCounty OPA 2 - Environmental Resource Recovery Centre<p>​​The County of Simcoe adopted a Solid Waste Management Strategy in 2010 that provides the framework for the County's waste disposal options and diversion programs. Guided by the Strategy, and following further recommendations from Council, the County initiated a siting process in 2014 to identify a site for the development of an Organics Processing Facility (OPF) for the long-term processing of source-separated organics (SSO).  The siting process was subsequently expanded to also identify a site for the development of a Materials Management Facility (MMF) for the transfer of garbage, recyclables, and SSO.  Collectively, these facilities are referred to as the Environmental Resource Recovery Centre (ERRC).<br></p><p>Following an extensive <a href="/_layouts/15/FIXUPREDIRECT.ASPX?WebId=a41fbfa1-82ca-4939-9932-d97b8d6ad3e9&TermSetId=fb933945-005d-43ad-bb62-b84ef1fa9284&TermId=ae857544-17dc-45d3-869c-5fe2901daf43">site evaluation process</a>, which considered 502 candidate sites, County Council selected the property located at 2976 Horseshoe Valley Road in the Township of Springwater within Lot 2, Concession 1, as the preferred site.  The subject lands are approximately 84 hectares (207.6 acres) in size and the approximate footprint of the ERRC is estimated at 4.5 hectares (11.12 acres).  </p><p>The County is proposing to amend its Official Plan to facilitate the development of the ERRC.  Other related planning applications (Official Plan Amendment & Zoning Bylaw Amendment) have also been submitted to the Township of Springwater and are currently subject to the Township's planning review process.  More specific information on the proposed planning amendments can be found in the Planning Justification Report listed below. <br></p><p><a href="/Planning/Pages/Simcoe-County-Environmental-Resource-Recovery-Centre.aspx">Read more...​</a><br></p>

of Simcoe Official Plan to amend Schedule 5.1 Land Use Designations of the County of Simcoe Official Plan to designate the subject lands “Agricultural – Subject to Exception 3.6.14" and “Rural – Subject to Exception 3.7.14".  The Exception policies of Sections 3.6.14 and 3.7.14 will permit a number of accessory type uses (such as camping, parking and concession booths) and small scale recreational uses (such as minor soccer) on portions of the subject lands, with specific restrictions including duration and location of such uses to be further detailed in the related site specific local municipal official plan amendment and zoning by-law amendments.​<br></p><p>The Burl's Creek Event Grounds application was received on December 11, 2015 and was deemed complete on February 18,

Waste Management​ - SC-OPA-1901Waste Management​ - SC-OPA-1901<h4>​​​​​​​County File No. SC-OPA-1901</h4><br><span style="font-size:1em;">The County of Simcoe adopted a Solid Waste Management Strategy in 2010 that provides the framework for the County’s waste disposal options and diversion programs. Guided by the Strategy, the County is working to further these options and programs by approaching waste management as a “system” comprised of landfilling (i.e. permanent storage of waste) and non-landfilling activities (i.e. transfer stations, recycling facilities and organics processing facilities).   </span><br><br><span style="font-size:1em;">Currently, to facilitate the establishment or expansion of a waste management site for non-landfilling activities, a County official plan amendment along with amendments to the local municipal official plan and zoning by-law would be required.  </span><br><br><span style="font-size:1em;">To alleviate the burden of undertaking an official plan amendment at the upper and lower tier for non-landfilling activities, the County is proposing policy amendments to Section 4.9 Waste Management of the County Official Plan. The proposed modifications will introduce a systems approach to waste management in the County, differentiate landfilling and non-landfilling activities, clarify language associated with D-4 Assessment Areas and D-4 studies, and update associated map schedules.   </span><div><span style="font-size:1em;"></span><br><div>The following report and supporting materials were prepared in support

Age-Friendly Policies - SC-OPA-1902Age-Friendly Policies - SC-OPA-1902<span style="font-size:1em;font-weight:bold;">​​​​​County File No. SC-OPA-1902</span><br><p>The County of Simcoe adopted a Positive Aging Strategy in 2017 that provides the framework for the County’s age-friendly principles. Guided by the Strategy, the County is working to further these principles by implementing age-friendly policies through a County Official Plan Amendment.  <br> <br>Age-friendly design of our communities and physical settings is an important component in creating a healthy aging environment. An Age-Friendly Community is a place that encourages “active aging” by optimizing opportunities for health, participation and security in order to enhance quality of life as people age. In 2007, the World Health Organization (WHO) conducted a comprehensive study of older persons that identified eight key dimensions that are central to creating an Age-Friendly Community. These include: outdoor spaces and buildings; transportation; housing; social participation; respect and social inclusion; civic participation and employment; communication and information; and community support and health services. (WHO, 2007).  With this research, and an improved understanding of what is important to older persons, including the eight WHO principles is essential in creating communities for older persons. An age-friendly philosophy values, respects, and supports our older persons by enhancing and creating; affordable housing options, opportunities for volunteerism; regular communication tools; and a full suite of services to support their health and daily living needs. <br> <br>As part of this County Official Plan Amendment, the County Official Plan is being modified to incorporate age-friendly principles into a regional policy framework to assist our local municipalities in introducing land-use policies to support our senior populations, including the provision of housing and services to meet their needs.<br> <br>The following materials were prepared in support of the application in February 2020:<br></p><ol><li><a href="/Planning/Documents/1%20Draft%20OP%20Policy%20Edits%20SC-OPA-1902%20Feb%2020%20TC.pdf" title="Link to PDF copy of Draft County Official Plan Amendment Text – Track Changes" target="_blank">Draft County Official Plan Amendment Text – Track Changes</a> - February 2020<br></li><li><a href="/Planning/Documents/2%20Draft%20OP%20Policy%20Edits%20SC-OPA-1902%20Feb%2020%20Clean.pdf" title="Link to PDF copy of Draft County Official Plan Amendment Text – Clean version" target="_blank">Draft County Official Plan Amendment Text – Clean version</a> - February 2020<br></li><li><a href="/Planning/Documents/3%20COPA_County%20Edit%20-%2020%20Feb%202020%20SC-OPA-1902.pdf" title="Link to PDF copy of Draft County Official Plan Amendment" target="_blank">Draft County Official Plan Amendment</a> - February 2020<br></li><ul><li><span style="font-size:1em;">​​</span><a href="/Planning/Documents/4%20Schedule%20A%20-%20SC-OPA-1902-AF%20Proposed%20Text%20Mods.pdf" title="Link to PDF copy of Schedule A – SC-OPA-1902 – Age-Friendly Policies – Summary of Policy Changes" target="_blank" style="font-size:1em;">Schedule A – SC-OPA-1902 – Age-Friendly Policies – Summary of Policy Changes</a><span style="font-size:1em;"> - </span><span style="font-size:1em;">February 2020</span></li></ul></ol><div>In October 2020 the aforementioned materials were updated and are accessible through the following links:<br></div><div><ol><li><a href="/Planning/Documents/1%20Draft%20OP%20Policy%20Edits%20for%20SC-OPA-1902%20Age-Friendly%20Oct%202020%20TC.pdf" title="Link to PDF copy of Draft County Official Plan Amendment Text – Track Changes" target="_blank">Draft County Official Plan Amendment Text – Track Changes</a> - October 2020<br></li><li><a href="/Planning/Documents/2%20Draft%20OP%20Policy%20Edits%20for%20SC-OPA-1902%20Age-Friendly%20Oct%202020%20Clean.pdf" title="Link to PDF copy of Draft County Official Plan Amendment Text – Clean version" target="_blank">Draft County Official Plan Amendment Text – Clean version</a> - October 2020<br></li><li><a href="/Planning/Documents/SC-OPA-1902_for%20Public%20Meeting%20Circulation%20-%20Oct%2029%202020.pdf" title="Link to PDF copy of Draft County Official Plan Amendment" target="_blank">Draft County Official Plan Amendment with Schedule A</a> - October 2020<br></li></ol><div><br></div></div><div><div><div><h4>Consultation & Public Meeting​</h4><p>In accordance with Section 17(15) of the <em>Planning Act</em>, the County circulated relevant information to local and adjacent municipalities, agencies, ministries, regulatory authorities and Indigenous Communities for their review and comment. </p><p>The County held a statutory public meeting (virtual) on November 24, 2020 at 1pm. Notice of this meeting was provided in accordance with the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, c.P. 13. Minutes of the Public Meeting are available <a href="https://can01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https://simcoe.civicweb.net/Portal/MeetingInformation.aspx?Org%3DCal%26Id%3D627&data=04%7c01%7cIshan.Maggo%40simcoe.ca%7c14477f06561b462292c408d8d2bf28aa%7cbaae52565a7340f28c4d76f3ae971463%7c1%7c0%7c637491065741534591%7cUnknown%7cTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7c1000&sdata=TdYRwZ/r39PvjqsZ3AtSz%2BS4ijv5R8lIGP3/D6rLhCk%3D&reserved=0">here</a>.​<br><br></p><h4>Adoption & Approval​</h4><p>County Planning Staff prepared a Report CCW 2021-019 recommending adoption of the age-friendly policies (OPA No. 6)  which is Item 8.2 on the January 26<sup>th </sup>2021 Committee of the Whole agenda that is available on the County website using this <a href="https://can01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https://simcoe.civicweb.net/Portal/MeetingInformation.aspx?Org%3DCal%26Id%3D633&data=04%7c01%7cIshan.Maggo%40simcoe.ca%7cb8816e4254ca45b42afe08d8c174ad64%7cbaae52565a7340f28c4d76f3ae971463%7c1%7c0%7c637472054149667884%7cUnknown%7cTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7c1000&sdata=aqDgwg9iyi2TyNccvSloJC6gT3sHRHa3fDNXnNOb4ec%3D&reserved=0">link​</a>. <br></p><p>On February 9th 2021, County Council enacted the By-law to adopt the OPA (<a href="https://simcoe.civicweb.net/Portal/MeetingInformation.aspx?Org=Cal&Id=634">see Item 26.​4</a>).
