    Hamlet of Norval Draft Zoning By-law Amendment

    On November 28, 2011, Council for the Corporation of the Town of Halton Hills passed By-law No. 2011-0098, being a By-law to Amend By-law 2010-0050, as amended, to include the Hamlet of Norval within the Comprehensive Zoning By-law. See Notice of Passing By-law 2011-0098 has been appealed to the Ontario Municipal Board and details of the appeals can be found here.

    By-law 2011-0098 puts new zoning regulations in effect for the Hamlet of Norval by incorporating Norval within the Town's Comprehensive Zoning By-law.

    Location of the Lands

    As depicted on the Key Map, Zoning By-law 2011-0098 applies to all lands within the Hamlet of Norval with the following three exceptions:

    • The property legally described as Part of Lot 21 and Part of Village Lots 22, 23 24 and 25, and All of Village Lots 19, 20 and 21, Being Part of Lot 12, Concession 11;
    • The property legally described as Concession 11 Pt Lot 11, Plan 64 Part Lot 10; and,  
    • The property legally described as, Concession 11 Pt Lot 11, Lots 11-15, Plan 64.

    These three properties remain subject to By-law 74-51, as amended.

    Due to the scale of the Key Map, the properties not subject to By-law 2011-0098 have not been shown on the Key Map.

    Within the Hamlet Community Core Area, the Zoning By-law Amendment:

    • places properties that previously were zoned Commercial in the Esquesing Zoning By-law (By-law 74-51) in a Hamlet Commercial Zone which permits the range of uses contemplated by the Hamlet of Norval Secondary Plan.
    • places the entirety of 507 Guelph Street, 530 Guelph Street, and the portion of 16 Adamson Street North outside of the floodplain, in a Hamlet Commercial Zone in recognition that commercial uses exist on these properties. The ranges of permitted uses on these properties are as contemplated by the Hamlet of Norval Secondary Plan.
    • places all of the other properties within the Hamlet Community Core area in a Hamlet Residential Zone. A site specific Zoning By-law Amendment would be required for a new commercial use on these properties.

    Within the rest of the Hamlet of Norval, properties are placed in one of the following zones: Environmental Protection One; Hamlet Residential One or Two; Development; Hamlet Institutional; or Open Space One, Three or Four. Table 1 below, shows the current land use designations in the approved Hamlet of Norval Secondary Plan and the implementing zoning included in Zoning By-law Amendment 2011-0098.

    Table 1 below shows the current land use designations in the Hamlet of Norval Secondary Plan and the corresponding zoning proposed to be implemented through the draft Zoning By-law Amendment.
