LAST CHANCE TO SAVE MIDHURST!
After a year-long review, the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change (MOECC) has raised a lot of concerns regarding the Environmental Assessment (EA) for the MSP. They point to superficial and missing studies re water supply, sewage treatment effects, air quality and road capacity. Yet, they suggest these issues could wait for the required investigation until AFTER the EA is approved, when water-taking permit applications and sewage plant design will occur. Pushed by the township’s consultant engineer [who is paid by the developers] and advised that refusal or even delay might mean developer lawsuits, Council is prepared to give in. With Notice of Completion scheduled for June 19th, Council is moving too fast for meaningful public input and sober reflection. AND if those in-depth studies and investigations wait until AFTER EA approval, IT WILL BE TOO LATE!
MRA intends to appeal Council’s decision by mounting a vigorous challenge to the claims made in the developers’ final report (ESR) to MOECC. The law provides 30 days for citizens to voice their concerns about the EA to MOECC. Currently, that’s June 19th – July 19th. Yet, we won’t even get to see that final report until June 19th. How fair is that?
We are still fighting to SAVE MIDHURST for current residents and generations to come. We need your support NOW.
