Below is describing removing one of the only few left woodlot/natural area's to build an industrial Park by Santarossa Contruction. Our residential community swallowed by industry and nature area and wildlife area will be tore down to be replaced with Cement and buildings. Help save the few remaining woodlot/natural area's left in our communities by signing this petition.

Stop D19 SANTA!

The County of Essex (the Approval Authority) has received an application for approval of a Plan of Subdivision (County Application No. 37-T-17003) for a 29 hectare (71.6 acre) parcel of land within the Town of Tecumseh described as Part Lot 12, Concession 8 and situated on the north-east corner of the 8th Concession Road/County Road 46 intersection within the Oldcastle Business Park (see Map of reverse for location). The applicant is proposing the creation of nine industrial lots/blocks (ranging in size from 1.1 hectares to 5.8 hectares) which will have direct access to a proposed internal roadway that will connect to both 8th Concession Road and County Road 46. No lots will have direct access to County Road 46. A 2.4 hectare block for a future stormwater management facility at the north-eastern corner of the property abutting Highway 401 and a 5.3 hectare block containing the existing woodlot/natural area at the south-east corner of the property are also proposed. The proposed subdivision will be on full municipal services. Details with respect to the subdivision, including road and lotting patterns and other details, will be presented at the public meeting.

The subject property is also the subject of a corresponding Zoning By-law Amendment application filed with the Town (Town Planning File: D19 SANTA). The proposed zoning by-law amendment seeks to rezone the proposed nine industrial lots/blocks from “Holding – Business Park Zone (H) BP” to “Holding – Industrial Zone (H) M1” and to rezone the woodlot/natural area and the proposed stormwater management facility from “Holding – Business Park Zone (H) BP” to “Parks and Open Space Zone (P)”. The Holding (H) symbol will remain on those portions of the lands identified for industrial uses until the Owner executes a development agreement with the Town and obtains final approval of the Plan of Subdivision from the County of Essex. In addition, Council approval of site plan control agreements will be required prior to the development proceeding on the industrial lots/blocks. The subject property is designated Business Park in the Sandwich South Official Plan.
