No objections to proposed metal shop near Flesherton

If approved, the new shop would manufacture fencing used on construction sites
A shop and outdoor storage facility would be added to the property located on the East Back Line near Flesherton.

Grey Highlands council received no objections to a proposed metal shop near Flesherton at a recent public rezoning meeting.

Council held the public meeting on Sept. 25, to consider a rezoning to allow an on farm diversified use (OFDU) on a Flesherton area property. The property is located on the East Back Line and the proposal would see the zoning changed from rural to rural commercial to allow for a metal working shop to be built at the site.

The plan would see a 250 metre shop built on the property for the fabrication, manufacturing and storage of fencing used on construction sites. In addition, a 450-metre outdoor storage site would also be created.

On the property at the present time is a house, sheep barn/shed and pig barn.

At the public meeting, there were no objections from members of the community to the proposal. And members of council raised no concerns about the matter. The meeting took just a few minutes to complete.

Commenting agencies such as Grey County and Grey Sauble Conservation Authority also had no concerns about the proposal.

The planning department’s full report on the application can be found here.

The application will return to a future council meeting for consideration.
