Two appeals now underway over proposed Springwater waste facility

Progress on the County of Simcoe’s Environmental Resource Recovery Centre project (ERRC) is churning slowly, especially now that a second appeal has been added to the project stack.
A Local Planning Appeals Tribunal (LPAT) case management conference between all parties involved was held Wednesday at the Township of Springwater Administration Centre in Midhurst.
However, by the end, the tribunal wasn’t any closer to setting hearing dates.
“We are five years now into the site-selection process. The county has spent well over $1 million getting to this point,” said Marshall Green, legal counsel for the County of Simcoe.
There is an existing appeal by two individuals and an environmental advocacy group on the location of the proposed structure.
