The Council of the Township of Scugog has received a Zoning By-law Amendment Application to Zoning By-Law 14-14, to amend the zoning on the lands shown on the attached key map.


On April 11, 2022, the Region of Durham granted provisional consent to Land Division application LD 028/2022, approving a proposed lot line adjustment and severance of a surplus farm dwelling, subject to a number of conditions including a rezoning of the property. The purpose of the proposed Zoning By-law Amendment is to rezone the property to recognize the existing dwelling as a rural residential lot in order to facilitate the severance of a surplus farm dwelling and to rezone the retained lands so that no further severances or residential uses are permitted. The retained farmland is proposed to be merged with the adjacent farmland to the south. 


The Council of the Township of Scugog is holding a Virtual Public Meeting to provide interested parties the opportunity to learn more about the proposed Zoning By-law Amendment, make comments, and provide additional information relative to the proposed amendment before any decisions are made on the zoning application. As a result of unforeseen circumstances, this virtual public meeting has been rescheduled and will be held on:
