Comments on the existing (2005) Provincial Policy Statement (October 24, 2010)

See the following:

Ontario’s Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing (MMAH) is reviewing the Provincial Policy Statement (PPS) 2005 and has asked for comments on this policy statement.

Gravel Watch Ontario (Gravel Watch) welcomes this opportunity to comment on the PPS. Gravel Watch is a provincial coalition acting in the interests of residents and communities to protect the health, safety, quality of life of Ontarians and the natural environment in matters that relate to aggregate resources. In light of our experience with the PPS 2005, we wish to contribute the following comments on this policy.

Due to Gravel Watch’s central interest in aggregates (primarily sand, stone and gravel), the comments given here concentrate largely on PPS’s Section 2.5 on Mineral Aggregate Resources.  Our comments are organized around the subsections of 2.5.  For most of these subsections, we list our concerns regarding the subsection and our corresponding recommendations.
