CELA counsel is representing the Friends of Simcoe Forests ("FSF") in a Local Planning Appeal Tribunal appeal of a decision by the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing to approve an Official Plan amendment allowing a waste processing facility in the middle of a significant woodland and the habitat of several species at risk. Local residents are raising concerns about safety, odour, and natural heritage impacts. FSF has submitted two affidavits from a professional planner and a team of natural heritage experts.
