TOPIC – Midhurst Secondary Plan – “Celebration of Rural Living” / Margaret Atwood EVENT in Midhurst / SUN JUNE 22.
INFO – The Issue:
Despite major violations to the Provincial Policy Statement and the Places to Grow Act, on January 19, 2012, the Minister of Infrastructure authorised a “Special Rule” to permit the development of 300 hectares of farmland (the first phase of a plan to build 10,000 homes on 756 hectares of farmland) surrounding the village of Midhurst, just north of Barrie in the Township of Springwater, Ontario. This paves the way to convert a village of 3,500 people surrounded by farms, into a city the size of Orillia in an area where there is no meaningful employment.
