June 22, 2008 saw a major rain storm in Tavistock and surrounding area. Local reports indicate there was 2 ¾ to 3 ¾ inches of rain over a fairly short period of time. There were no major problems reported to the Township. There were some isolated problems investigated, but they were not related to a failure of Township infrastructure. They tended to involve local lot grading issues, sump pump failures, etc. Observation of the new swales and drains indicated everything was working as designed.
In the Province of Ontario, the Planning Act authorises municipalities to employ Site Plan
Control as a land use tool to ensure the appropriate location of a development on a site and to
ensure the safety, attractiveness and compatibility with the surrounding land. This Guideline
document has been prepared to inform potential developers and the public about the use of Site
Plan Control, the requirements for Site Plan approval in the Township of East Zorra-Tavistock,
and to provide guidelines for site plan preparation and review.
Section 2 of this Guide provides an overview of the Township’s Site Plan Approval process.
Section 3 the submission requirements for Site Plan application and approval. The
more specific objectives for each matter which is subject to Site Plan Control, as well as the
guidelines, criteria and standards to be used in order to achieve these goals, are in Section 4 of
The Power Point presentation from RJ Burnside Ltd. on the Tavistock Master Storm System Drainage Plan.
