Notice of a Complete Application and of a Public Meeting Concerning a Proposed Zoning By-Law Amendment


TAKE NOTICE that the Corporation of the Municipality of The Nation will hold an electronic public meeting on May 29th, 2023, at 5:30 pm to consider a proposed amendment to the Zoning By-law No. 2-2006 of the Municipality of The Nation, file ZBL-20-2022, under Section 34 of the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, as amended.

The zoning by-law amendment affects a parcel of the property bearing civic number 4205 Concession Rd. 19 in the Municipality of The Nation, as shown on the Key Map below. The subject site is within the ‘Rural Policy Area’ of the United Counties of Prescott and Russell Official Plan (UCPR).

The zoning by-law amendment proposes to change the zoning category of a parcel of the property from “Rural Zone (RU)” to “Rural Zone – Exception (RU-X1)”, in order to withdraw single family dwelling house and accessory single family dwelling house from the agricultural parcel. The adoption of this amendment is one of the approval conditions under severance file B-56-2021.

The public meeting will be live streamed on our YouTube Channel “The Nation Municipality / La municipalité de La Nation”.

Please confirm your presence virtually, to Mrs Julie Langlois-Caisse, by email at or by calling 613-764-5444, extension 242. Please indicate the full names and addresses of the people who will attend.

It is possible to submit a question or comment during the live stream via the live chat on YouTube.

Any person may also make written representations by mail or email to the Municipality either in support of or in opposition to the minor variance before 4:00pm on May 29th, 2023. Please indicate the file number.

If a person or public body does not make oral submissions at the Public Meeting or make written submissions to Committee before the application is approved, the person or public body may not be added as a party to the hearing of an appeal before the Ontario Land Tribunal (OLT) unless, in the opinion of the Tribunal, there are reasonable grounds to add the person or public body as a party.

If you wish to be notified of the decision of the Committee on the proposed minor variance, you must make a written request to the Clerk of the Municipality.

If applicable this notice shall be posted by the owner of any land that contains seven or more residential units in a location that is visible to all of the residents.
