This By-law changes the zone designation of a parcel of land in order to prohibit
the use of an agricultural lot for residential purposes. The zoning amendment is
required as a condition of approval for a new agriculture related residential lot in
order to ensure that the lands remaining after the severance will not be developed for
residential purposes. The intent of the by-law is to ensure that the Townships
agricultural land resource is protected from incompatible development. In addition the
frontage requirement for the agricultural lot associated with the new agricultural
residential lot has been reduced to recognize the resulting configuration of the new lot.
