In a decision released yesterday by the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, Picton Terminals has been ordered to remove portable industrial equipment and aggregate stockpiles stored on the northeast portion of its Picton Bay site.
“We are pleased with this decision,” said Dave Sutherland of Save Picton Bay, the applicant. “It reflects the fact that both Picton Terminals and the County have been allowing the site to be used in ways that contravene the current zoning. We hope the company and the County will work to ensure prompt compliance as directed by the Court.”
Other aspects of the decision appear to raise questions regarding certain legal findings. “We are reviewing the decision and hope to meet with our client for discussion in the near future,” said Eric Gillespie, counsel for Save Picton Bay.
