Did the October 2016 OMB decision stop the proposed Hidden Quarry?

No.  The applicant, JDCL, has re-applied for a zoning amendment to Guelph Eramosa Township.  At the same time, the company is applying to Wellington County requesting an amendment to the Official Plan.  At the time of the first application the County’s Official Plan did not review zoning amendments, but in 2015 the County approved a revised plan which included amendments to the Official Plan as well.  The application for a licence to operate a quarry, submitted to the Ministry of Natural Resources, is still deemed complete, and will be adjudicated at the Ontario Muncipal Board along with the expected re-zoning application appeal by JDCL.
