Changes to Watershed Development Guidelines
Our Board of Directors have approved changes to Chapter 6 of our Watershed Development Guidelines. These changes will take effect June 1, 2020. The major changes include:
- A third-party proponent (e.g. Lake Simcoe waterfront landowner) undertaking development on Crown Land will require approvals from the LSRCA under the Conservation Authorities Act.
- The definition of a boathouse has changed to “a single-storey building designed and used solely for the purpose of storing and docking boats and related equipment. The structure does not contain habitable space, water and/or sanitary servicing and has an opening to the water of an appropriate size to accommodate a boat.
- The definition of a dock has been changed.
- A single shore deck may be permitted on a property subject to size limitations.
If you have any questions regarding the new guidelines, please do not hesitate to contact Taylor Stevenson at firstname.lastname@example.org or Ashlea Brown at email@example.com.
