Elgin Federation provide Land Planning Training to board directors, Elgin’s MSR Laura Fraser, and Zone 4 Director Tracey Arts. PlanScape Inc. Senior Planner Debbie Vandenakker delivered the training.
Lasting and relevant impact to the OFA membership
Board members are more informed now of the rules around land division and planning and the potential impacts of the new legislation and proposed Provincial Policy Statement. This will help them support EFA members in protecting their farming operations should the need arise. The board came away with resources for future reference.
Lasting and relevant impacts to greater community
The EFA board hopes to build stronger relationships with municipal leaders and members of the public by being better able to explain how these new rules will impact farmers and how to be able to all work together to support housing development without negatively impacting farmers’ ability to directly (and indirectly) feed, clothe, and move people locally, across Canada and around the world.
