The Environmental Resource Recovery Centre is currently under development at 2976 Horseshoe Valley Road West, Springwater. This facility will house the
Organics Processing Facility (OPF),
Materials Management Facility (MMF), and areas for truck servicing, public education, and space to potentially sort blue box recycling in the future.
On January 2, 2019, notification was received from Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing (MMAH) regarding their approval of the County Official Plan Amendment (COPA) for the ERRC at 2976 Horseshoe Valley Road West, Springwater. Information pertaining to this decision can be found on the provincial Environmental Registry here.
The 20-day appeal period for the approval ended on January 22, 2019. Three (3) appeals were submitted and are now being addressed through the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (the “LPAT"). The LPAT will be holding a Case Management Conference
(CMC) regarding the ERRC project on Wednesday, August 7, 2019 at the Township
of Springwater Administration Centre beginning at 10:00 am. The meeting is open
to the public. The purpose of the CMC is to set out the process for dealing
with the three appeals to the provincial approval of COPA allowing for
development of the ERRC. The LPAT notice was circulated by the County’s Legal
team in May as required and can be viewed here.
