Caledon’s Official Plan

In 2022, FCPG engaged the services of a Professional Planner to review the aggregate policies in the Town of Caledon’s Official Plan.

When compared to the other Top Ten Aggregate Producing Municipalities in Ontario (TAPMO), “…the Town of Caledon scores the weakest in protecting the interests of residents due to a general lack of policy content.”

The Briefing Note and the full Report from the Planner can be found here:

Flyrock and Other Impacts from Quarry Blasting Operations

This document was submitted by local resident and former FCPG board member Tony Sevelka specifically as an Objection Response to the 2022 Nelson Aggregates Quarry Application. It is broadly relevant and contains all the papers he has written on this topic over the past three years.

"This submission and the research papers should be of interest to MNRF and all the citizens of the municipalities in Ontario that are currently being confronted by quarry applications, and that lack an awareness and understanding of the adverse effects caused by Blasting Quarry Operations."
