The provincial government has made unilateral changes to an amendment to Wellington County’s Official Plan, adding more than 1,000 acres of mostly agricultural land to urban boundaries.
The boundary extensions, which were among modifications directed in the Ministry of Municipal Affairs’ April 11 approval of Official Plan Amendment (OPA) 119, include:
- just over 1,000 acres around Fergus and Elora in Centre Wellington
- 37 acres adjacent to Rockwood in Guelph/Eramosa
- about 15 acres on the southwest corner of Clifford in the Town of Minto
