Proposal details

The purpose of this application 60-C-210596 for consent is to sever PIN 42050-0038, for the creation of one (1) new lot for permanent residential use. The proposed severed lot will be approximately 45 hectares in size and contains an existing residential dwelling constructed in 1970 (which replaced the existing original two-storey 1941 home), serviced by a sewage system and a well. The proposed retained lot will be approximately 19.4 hectares in size and contains a permanent residential dwelling constructed in 2014 which replaced the original 1924 log home. Half of the proposed retained property is located across the road and CN Railway tracks. It is serviced by a sewage system and lake water. Although reconstructions have occurred, permanent residency was established on both lots since 1941 as family members lived on both properties. No new development is being proposed.

The subject lands are located on Good Lake in the Unincorporated Township of Rowell, District of Kenora, approximately 22 kilometres north of the City of Dryden municipal boundary. The subject lands are accessed by a publicly travelled road known as Amesdale Road via Highway 655.
