Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link
The RDN is currently looking for your input on zoning amendment application PL2019-081.

Lot B and C Horne Lake Road

The RDN has received a zoning amendment for the properties legally described as Lot B and C, District Lot 90, Newcastle District, Plan EPP79321. The subject properties are currently zoned Rural 6 Subdivision District D (RU6D) (see Document Library), which allows a range of rural uses including agriculture and one dwelling unit per parcel with a minimum parcel size of 2.0 hectares.

The proposal is to amend the RU6 zone to a Comprehensive Development Zone that would permit artist studio, convenience store, electric vehicle charging station, emergency services, fast food outlet, gasoline service station, produce market, tourist information booth, restaurant and retail store.

This is in your community and we want to hear your thoughts on this proposal. A few ways you can learn more and share your thoughts are by:
