A virtual public information meeting will take place on Wednesday, November 24 at 7 pm regarding the planning applications OPA-09-21, B146-21 & Z110-21 (Drake Property Holdings Inc.).

The County has received applications for an Official Plan Amendment, Consent, and Zoning By-law Amendment for a commercial development and a new urban residential lot. The applicant seeks permission to construct six additional hotel rooms fronting onto Wharf Street at the Drake Motor Inn and to expand the Drake Devonshire Inn by creating additional dining and accommodation space (10 units).

The consent application proposes to create one new residential lot fronting onto Niles Street. The new lot would allow for the construction of a single-detached dwelling.

Members of the public who wish to attend the virtual public meeting must register by contacting Matt Coffey, Planning Coordinator, Approvals, at by noon on Monday, November 22. The meeting will be held virtually on Microsoft Teams. If you have any questions regarding accessing Microsoft Teams, please contact Mr. Coffey at the email address above.

New Planning Application Process

This public meeting is an information meeting only. Public information meetings are held as part of the new planning application process announced on July 12, 2021.

At a public information meeting, the proponent/agent will present the proposal. If any member of the public would like to ask questions or make comments, they will be able to do so after the presentation by the applicant.

The statutory public meeting required under the Planning Act will be a Planning Committee meeting and would only be held after the public information meeting and when the assigned County planner has completed an analysis of the project.
