The Town of Perth has recently received notice that Perthmore Enterprises Inc. has submitted an appeal to the Ontario Land Tribunal (OLT) regarding the Zoning By-law Amendment. A virtual Case Management Conference (CMC) has been scheduled by the OLT for Monday, May 6, 2024, at 10 am (Case Number OLT-24- 000210). 

The Conference serves to: 

  • identify issues raised in the proceeding; 
  • identify facts or evidence that may be agreed upon between the two parties;
  • provide direction for disclosure of information; 
  • discuss opportunities for resolving issues in proceedings and possible use of other dispute resolution processes; 
  • establish dates and determine the order of presentation of submissions; and
  • determine the length and schedule of a hearing. 

Members of the public are welcome to attend the Case Management Conference virtually. Individuals who wish to seek participant status must review the OLT Hearings Guide and submit their required application to the assigned OLT Case Coordinator/Planner by email

As the matter is now one of a legal capacity, Town staff and Council are not able to make public comment. Furthermore, Town staff and Council no longer have the ability to make a final decision on the subject as a result of the appeal; this decision will be made by the Province through the OLT. The Town continues to work with its solicitor in preparation for the Case Management Conference. 

For more information regarding the Appeals Process and Hearings, please visit the Ontario Land Tribunal website.
