LAST CALL: 502 Winston Road Greenbelt Public Planning Meeting – June 5th @ Town Hall

It’s “Groundhog Day” on June 5th for the Greenbelt property at 502 Winston Road when the Town hosts its last public meeting into the application to redesignate the property from “Specialty Crop – Tender Fruit & Grape Lands” to the lesser-protected “Rural” classification. If approved, this would be the first step towards potential major development of this Greenbelt land.

After the original change was put on hold and then outright rejected by the Province after their “Greenbelt fiasco”, the applicant is now trying (again) at the Town and Regional level.

If you wish to spectate or delegate your opinion on this Greenbelt property application, the meeting will be tomorrow (Wed June 5th) at 6PM at Town Hall, Council Chambers. If you wish to delegate by Zoom, you can email your request to planning@grimsby.ca and/or clerks@grimsby.ca
