TOWN OF GLOVERTOWN – PUBLIC NOTICE
MUNICIPAL PLAN AMENDMENT
Glovertown Town Council has adopted amendments to its Municipal Plan and Development Regulations to add “agricultural tourism” as a Discretionary Use class in the Rural Resource and Agriculture zones.
The change will give Council discretionary authority (subject to public notice and comments) to consider applications for the following types of subsidiary activities to an existing crop or livestock farm:
- farm tours and agricultural education (e.g. school visits, gardening courses, equestrian courses)
- recreation (e.g. horseback riding, trail rides, archery target shooting)
- entertainment (e.g. wagon and sled rides, equestrian events)
- hospitality (e.g. overnight farm stays)
- catering (e.g. harvest dinners, farm lunches)
This will allow Council to consider a proposal for tourism development on an existing horse farm north of Station Road near the Trans Canada Highway.
Normally a Public Hearing would be held to consider comments on the amendment. However, due to Covid-19 restrictions, a physical Public Hearing will not be held. Instead, the Commissioner will consider all written comments received up to 4:00 p.m., Monday, July 12, 2021.
The proposed amendments are available for viewing at the Town Office and on the Town’s website (www.glovertown.net) or will also be emailed on request.
Anyone who wishes to comment shall deposit with the Town Clerk two copies of a signed statement outlining their objection or representation. Emails will be accepted as well.
