Planning Information & Fees

Under the Planning Act, Municipalities are required to circulate planning applications to appropriate agencies for review. The Conservation Authorities of Ontario have been delegated responsibility for the Natural Hazards section of the Provincial Policy Statement which guides Municipalities in Planning Act review and approvals.
Natural hazards include:
 Flooding
 Erosion
 Unstable Bedrock and Soil

Quinte Conservation staff review applications with respect to the most current technical guidelines, studies and professional opinions in order to ensure that applications are consistent with the Natural Hazard policies of the Provincial Policy Statement.

The fee structure below has been approved by the Quinte Conservation Executive Board which is made of members of council or delegates from the 18 local municipalities which we serve.

Often staff are requested by our member municipalities to review other reports prepared for planning applications. Such reports include environmental impact, hydrogeological and stormwater management reports.

Quinte Conservation reviews planning applications with respect to the Ontario Clean Water Act, Source Protection Studies, and Risk Management Reports.

Notes
Where several applications are applied for concurrently from the same parent parcel (i.e. two severed lots from one parcel; or consent and rezoning applications for the same severed parcel), only the higher applicable fee will be charged.

If a permit is required by this office (under the auspice of Ontario Regulation #319/09) prior to development of the subject property, we will determine if an additional fee is required within one year of the application, zoning amendment, or variance provided that a site inspection is not required for the permit.

Subdivision and site plan reviews include any pre-consultation meetings, site investigations, draft plan comments, peer reviews of environmental impact, hydrogeological and stormwater management studies, Ontario Regulation 319/09 permits, and clearance of draft conditions.

Planning Fees
(Fees are subject to change)
 $344 for Consent to Sever / Minor Variance / Zoning By-Law Amendment
 $626 for Official Plan Amendment
 $766 for Minor Site Plan Review
 $3,180 for Standard Site Plan Review
 $7,100 for Subdivision Review

Quinte Conservation Issues A Water Safety Statement for Unsafe Ice Conditions

Wednesday December 23, 2020

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: December 17, 2020

QUINTE CONSERVATION ISSUES A WATER SAFETY STATEMENT FOR UNSAFE ICE CONDITIONS

Due to changing weather conditions, ice is starting to form on lakes and rivers within the Watershed.

Quinte Conservation would like to remind residents that this early in the season, ice conditions can be very unpredictable, unsafe, and difficult to assess as above average flows in rivers and streams prevent the formation of stable ice surfaces.

Residents are advised to exercise extreme caution around all waterways as stream banks and fast moving water are both extremely dangerous. Adults are urged to keep children and pets away from all waterways, to stay off the ice, and avoid water control structures at all times. Hypothermia is a major concern for anyone who may fall into open water.

While Quinte Conservation does not measure ice thickness for recreational activities, the organization provides information on watershed safety conditions.

Quinte Conservation is issuing a Water Safety Statement regarding the changing ice conditions. A Water Safety Statement indicates that high flows, unsafe banks, melting ice or other factors could be dangerous for users such as anglers, boaters, swimmers, children or pets. Flooding is not expected.

This message will be in effect until (or updated before) January 15, 2021.

Quinte Conservation is a community-based environmental protection agency. It serves 18 municipalities in the watersheds of the Moira, Napanee and Salmon Rivers and Prince Edward County. It provides cost-effective environmental expertise and leadership. Quinte Conservation’s main goal is to create a sustainable ecosystem where people and nature live in harmony. More information about Quinte Conservation is available at www.quinteconservation.ca.

“As of 8:30 a.m. this morning, March 26, 2020 I have declared a Public Emergency in accordance with the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act,” states Rick Phillips, Warden of Hastings County.

“Having conferred with my fellow County Councillors and our senior leadership team it is my opinion that it is necessary for me as Warden, to make the declaration at this time. There are four main reasons for this critical action,” said Phillips:

 Taking the necessary actions to support the health and safety of our staff;
 To support where we can, the operations of our local member municipalities.
“Yesterday, I spoke with Mayors of the Cities of Belleville, Quinte West and Prince Edward County about the declaration. Both Mayor Ferguson from Prince Edward County and Mayor Harrison from Quinte West advised that they intend on making their declarations simultaneously with Hastings County. As neighbours and partners in the provision of critical services to our residents and businesses it is important for us to work together as we deal with this pandemic,” Phillips stated.

“Let me also make it clear that the County of Hastings has already taken steps to ensure that it has its continuity of operations plans in place and continues to deliver essential/critical services to the public.
