Municipal Infrastructure Projects

To minimize risks to our residents and workforce during the COVID19 emergency, only the 
following critical municipal infrastructure construction projects planned within existing 
residential areas will move forward during the state of emergency:
•	Edgewood Rd / Compton Ct (west of Amherstview) storm sewer system
•	Annual gravel road maintenance program
•	2020 road surface treatment program
•	Amherst Island 2017/ 2019 flood damage repair to shore roads 
(will depend on Lake level)

This is in addition to any essential works undertaken by the County of Lennox and 
Addington and by the Ministry of Transportation.

We are continuing to work on the design and tendering for all other projects so we
are ready to carry on once the emergency is lifted. Construction may begin later than 
usual or may need to be delayed until 2021, but this will depend on availability of labour, 
material, equipment and whether we can ensure that Township staff and our contractor 
partners can safely work during the COVID-19 pandemic. We thank you for your patience 
during this time.

Planning Applications

We continue to accept and process new planning applications. Please note however, 
many applications require that a statutory public meeting be held to allow for public 
comment, before Council or the Committee of Adjustment may make any decision on 
the application. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are unable to schedule any public 
meetings at this time. Therefore, no final decision on many planning applications can 
occur until we are able to begin holding public meetings again.

(minor variances, severances, other Planning Act applications)


If you have questions about a severance or minor variance, please email the Planning Technician or call 613-386-7351, ext. 124. For other planning applications please email the Approvals Planner or call Ext. 129.   For information on how to submit a new application is available on our website.
