Public Meetings

Applications under the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990 c.P.13 require notice to certain residents and agencies. The content of the notices is prescribed by the Act.

Any person may attend the public meeting and/or make written or verbal representation either in support or in opposition to a planning application. You may also comment by mail, planning [at] southhuron.ca (email), or fax. See our contact page for more information on how to contact us. Written submissions should be sent to the attention of the Clerk and received no later than noon prior to the public meeting.

Please note that comments and opinions submitted on these matters, including the originator’s name and address, become part of the public record and may be viewed by the general public and maybe published in a Planning Report, Council Agenda or Council Minutes.

If a person or public body does not make oral submissions at a public meeting or make written submissions to the Municipality of South Huron before the by-law is passed, the person or public body is not entitled to appeal the decision of the Municipality of South Huron to the Ontario Municipal Board.

If a person or public body does not make oral submissions at a public meeting or make written submissions to the Municipality of South Huron before the by-law is passed, the person or public body may not be added as a party to the hearing of an appeal before the Board unless, in the opinion of the Board, there are reasonable grounds to do so.
