Just below decision of Agricultural Land Commission (ALC)
December 30, 2019, the ALC did approve the proposal to release the covenant, with a condition that it is built in the proposed location (adjacent to 1171 Fairview Road) and the maximum floor area is restricted to 186m2 and yard area of 557m2.

1066 Rd Two – non-farm use of property and removal of covenant allowing for a house. The majority of council favoured the request that will now be forwarded to the Agricultural Land Commission – which has the final say. Councillors found little negative to say – indicating a land owner with 9 acres should be allowed a house to live in. They did request that that any residence must connect to the sanitary sewer of the Town.
The history of the land is interesting that a home was built at the corner of Fairview Rd and Road two many many decades ago – the Pohl orchard. After the ALC brought in circa 1972 – a severance given for the old house and a new home built, then a second home severed and a third home built with a covenant – no more homes to be built.
The most recent land owner purchased the property knowing that restriction.
