Decision details

The application for consent 60-C-210596 was draft approved on March 22, 2022 subject to conditions.

The application was reviewed for consistency with the environmental policies of the Provincial Policy Statement (e.g. land use compatibility, cultural heritage). No public comments were received, and conditions were added to address partner ministry concerns relating to land use compatibility, public health and safety, cultural heritage, and railway corridor.

No concerns related to fish or wildlife habitat, species at risk, or protected areas were identified in relation to this application. Given the existing use of this proposal and the absence of known natural heritage features in the area, there will be no negative impacts to greenspace, and natural heritage.

The following conditions were added:

  1. To ensure existing sewage systems are operating satisfactorily, a letter from the Northwestern Health Unit (NWHU) which states that both the severed and retained parcels have been inspected by the NWHU and meet their requirements.
  2. To ensure no further lot creation will occur on the severed and retained parcels, future renovations and building design will take into account noise and vibration from the train, an archaeological assessment is completed should any ground disturbance activity occur, the applicants shall enter into a Consent Agreement for the severed and retained parcels with the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing (MMAH).
  3. To protect human health and the environment, a letter from an approved septage disposal facility, confirming that the disposal facility has sufficient reserve capacity to accept hauled sewage from the lots is received.
  4. To protect the Canadian National Railway to meet its current and projected needs in the future, registration of an environmental easement for operational noise and vibration emissions, in favor of Canadian National Railway is required.

The decision to approve the consent is consistent with the Provincial Policy Statement once conditions are met. This decision will not have a significant impact on the environment.

The applicants have two years to satisfy conditions of draft approval, otherwise approval will lapse. The approval can be appealed using the procedure outlined below. Notice to appeal the decision to the Ontario Land Tribunal must be filed with the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing on or before April 11, 2022.

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.
