A member of the board for Save Picton Bay says there is good news and bad news on a decision by Ontario Superior Court this week.
On Monday, Justice Wolf Tausendfreund (Ontario Superior Court of Justice) announced that Picton Terminals has been ordered to remove portable industrial equipment and aggregate stockpiles stored on the northeast portion of its Picton Bay site.
Victor Lind with the Save Picton Bay Board says other portions of the property will be exempt under legal non-conforming status.
Lind says although it is not 100 per cent what Picton Terminals wanted, it’s also not 100 percent of what Save Picton Bay wants.
Lind explains legal non conforming status.
Prince Edward County Mayor Robert Quaiff gave Quinte News a brief reaction to the decision on Tuesday afternoon.
Quaiff says he and county staff will be reviewing the lengthy decision and see what else can be done moving forward.
He says the County may ask Picton Terminals to submit a site plan, so the municipality can be more involved, but for now, he’s satisfied with the decision and says it shows that the municipality has done nothing wrong.
We have also reached out to Doornekamp Construction for comment.
