Chapmans Expansion Official Plan Amendment

The applications to the County of Grey and Municipality of West Grey would consider allowing for an expansion to Chapman’s Ice Cream. The subject property is approximately 44 hectares in size, but the expansion is proposed on approximately 6.6 hectares of land. 
The lands are designated as ‘Rural’ and with a small portion of ‘Hazard Lands’ in the County Official Plan. The purpose and effect of the proposed Official Plan Amendment would be to re-designate approximately 6.6 hectares of the subject lands to the ‘Primary Settlement Area’ designation. No development will occur in the Hazard Lands designation. The expansion would allow for an initial building expansion of approximately 8,400 square metres as well as some parking lot expansions. Future expansions to the building or parking lot may also be needed. 
The lands are zoned as ‘Rural’ (A2), ‘Institutional’ (I), and ‘Natural Environment’ (NE) in the Municipality of West Grey Zoning By-law. The Zoning By-law Amendment would implement the Official Plan Amendment and amend the Municipality’s Zoning By-law by rezoning approximately 6.6 hectares of the subject lands to the ‘Industrial’ (M1) zone. Additional changes may also be made to the ‘Institutional’ (I) zone, which appear to have been placed on a small section of these lands in error.
