Notice of Passing of a Heritage Designation By-law Amendment

As per Section 30.1 of the Ontario Heritage Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. O.18, Notice is hereby given that the Council of the Township of Norwich passed By-law No. 67-2021 during its regular meeting held December 14th, 2021. This By-law amends the designation of the former Curries United Church located at Part Lot 18, Concession 5 (former East Oxford) municipally known as 465003 Curries Road. 
The amendment of By-law 14-84, “A by-law to designate the Curries United Church as being of Architectural and Historical Value or Interest”, was to facilitate conversion to a residential dwelling; clarify the statement explaining the property’s cultural heritage value or interest and the description of the property’s heritage attributes; change the legal description to recognize changes made as a result of recent Consent applications which changed the lot configuration;  and to revise the language of the by-law to make it consistent with the requirements of the Ontario Heritage Act.
Take Notice that any person or public body may, not later than the 31st day of January 2022, appeal to the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal by filing with the Clerk of The Corporation of The Township of Norwich a notice of appeal setting out the objection to the by-law and the reasons in support of the objection, accompanied by the fee as prescribed under the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal Act. Further information and the appellant form can be found at: 
Further information regarding this amendment is available from the Township of Norwich. Any inquiries may be directed to Kimberley Armstrong, Deputy Clerk at 519-468-2410 ext. 226 or
