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.
