The County of Prince Edward is aware that ABNA Investments Ltd. has formally withdrawn their appeal to the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT) regarding their operations at Picton Terminals. Their appeal was a challenge to Council’s unanimous decision to deny a re-zoning application that would permit expanded shipping activity at the site.
Furthermore, ABNA Investments Ltd. has challenged the municipality’s jurisdiction to regulate activities at the port through zoning and the Official Plan. ABNA Investments Ltd. has stated that they will continue operations at the port, notwithstanding municipal disapproval.
We are aware that this is an important issue for residents and are working quickly to investigate options.
The County will update the public and media as soon as new information becomes available.
