Local Planning Appeal Tribunal establishes limits and criteria for On-Farm Diversified Uses


In a decision issued on July 25, 2018, the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal refused an appeal of the decision of Clarington Municipal Council to refuse a “Seasonal Event Venue” in a rural area of Clarington. Nick Macos of Black Sutherland was successful in defending Council’s decision. The LPAT determined that associating a non-agricultural use with agriculture was not a “free pass” and that the zoning by-law must establish criteria to limit the scope, frequency and seasonality of the non-farm diversified use.

Mathias v. Clarington (Municipality), PL 170178.
