Lucein Stuebing – CAO




Public notice is hereby given that the Council of the Town of Burstall intends to adopt Bylaw No. 2022-198, the Official Community Plan and Bylaw No. 2022-19 and the Zoning Bylaw, under the provisions of The Planning and Development Act, 2007, to provide land use management and encourage sustainable development of the community. The Ministry of Government Relations Community Planning Branch has requested changes to the bylaws in order that they meet the current provisions and interpretations of the Statements of provincial Interest and the Planning and Development Act, 2007.The repeal off the 2nd and 3rd readings of these bylaws was done to make these changes.


The proposed bylaws are being adopted to provide long term land use and infrastructure management and community development in the Town and to encourage intermunicipal cooperation with neighbouring communities and to ensure the provisions of the Statements of Provincial interest and the intent of the Planning and Development Act, 2007 are applied in a consistent and fair manner within the community.


The Bylaws apply to all lands within the corporate boundaries of the Town of Burstall.


The reason for adopting the bylaws is outlined in the intent and Council believes that the adoption of land use bylaws will provide better direction to developers and residents and show the long-term commitment to responsible management of infrastructure and community resources.



Section 11.2, Page 27 has been amended to reflect correct zoning districts as contained in the Zoning Bylaw. R1, R2, C1, C2, CS and FUD.

Section 11.9 has been amended to reflect the change in Building Bylaw Legislation and now references the “Construction Codes Act” effective January 1, 2022.

Definitions have been amended to reflect Building Bylaw Legislation.


Section 3.21 is amended with the following:

  1. Pursuant to Section 242 of The Planning and Development Act, 2007, the
    Development Officer may inspect any development suspected of contravening The Planning and Development Act, 2007, or any regulation or bylaw made pursuant to The Planning and Development Act, 2007. If it is determined that a contravention
    exists, the Development Officer may notify the owner in writing and instruct the owner to correct the contravention within a set time period. If for any reason the contravention has not been corrected within that time, the Development Officer may extend the time period or issue a Zoning Compliance Order pursuant to
    Section 242(4) of The Planning and Development Act, 2007 to achieve bylaw conformance.
  2. Any person who contravenes this Bylaw is guilty of an offence and is liable, on summary conviction, to the penalties provided by section 243 of The Planning and Development Act, 2007
  3. The Development Officer may enter a property with consent of the owner or with a warrant and may not enter otherwise.

A new section will be added echoing what is in the OCP

Section 4.35

Consultation with the Railways/Highways shall be required when a potential development is proposed for:

  1. development or redevelopment proposals in proximity to rail facilities/highways or for proposals for rail-serviced industrial parks;
  2. road and utility Infrastructure works which may affect a rail facility and highway system;
  3. c)       transportation plans that incorporate freight transportation issues; and
  4. d)      all new, expanded, or modified rail facilities or commercial/industrial development.
  5. e)      Should further residential development be proposed near existing rail lines development within or adjacent to the Town, the Town will recognize the provisions of the Statements of Provincial Interest, Planning and Development Act, 2007, particularly as referenced by Clause 32(2) (k), and the “FCM” policy document on “Development Adjacent to Railway’s”, and all best management practices will be utilized, to ensure adequate setbacks between land uses are implemented. In addition, “The Land Use Planning, Rail Proximity and Public Safety Report” prepared for The Railway Association of Canada will be utilized in any review of rail line development. The Zoning Bylaw will be amended to be consistent with all current legislation should further development impacting both land uses occur. Currently the rail line is adjacent to light industrial and commercial uses and the Future Land use map does not include residential uses expanding or encroaching on the rail line.
  6. f)        Notwithstanding anything contained in this Bylaw, where any public street crosses a railway at the same grade, no building or structure shall be erected within 46 metres (150.92 feet) of the point of intersection of the centre line of both the railway and the street.
  7. g)       As identified and suggested on the Guidelines for New Development in Proximity to Railway Operations, The Federation of Canadian Municipalities and Railway Association of Canada of May 2013; the standard recommended building setbacks for new residential development in proximity to railway operations are as follows:

(a)    Freight Rail Yard: 300 metres

(b)    Principal Main Line: 30 metres

(c)    Secondary Main Line: 30 metres

(d)    Principal Branch Line: 15 metres

(e)     Secondary Branch Line: 15 metres

(f)     Spur Line: 15 metres



The Zoning Bylaw Map attached to and forming part of the Zoning Bylaw, is amended by indicating Lots 5-6 on Block 7 as zoned R1 – residential for residential development versus CS – Community Service as it no longer is an active church and is being converted to residential zoning.

2022 Drinking Water Quality and Compliance – Annual Notice to Consumers

Drinking Water Quality and Compliance

Annual Notice to Consumers


The Water Security Agency and the Ministry of Environment requires that at least once each year waterworks owners provide notification to consumers of the quality of water produced and supplied as well as information on the performance of the waterworks in submitting samples as required by a Minister’s Order or Permit to Operate a waterworks.  The following is a summary of the Town of Burstall water quality and sample submission compliance record for the 2022 time period.  This report was completed on January 19th, 2023.  Readers should refer to Water Security Agency’s Municipal Drinking Water Quality Monitoring Guidelines, June 2015, EPB 502 for more information on minimum sample submission requirements and the meaning of type of sample.  Permit requirements for a specific waterworks may require more sampling than outlined in the department’s monitoring guidelines.  If consumers need more information on the nature and significance of specific water tests, for example, “what is the significance of Selenium in a water supply”, more detailed information is available from: .

Chemical – Health Category

All waterworks serving less than 5000 persons are required to submit water samples for SE’s Chemical Health category once every 2 years.  The Chemical Health category includes analysis for arsenic, barium, boron, cadmium, chromium, fluoride, lead, nitrate, selenium and uranium.

All waterworks serving less than 5000 persons are required to submit water samples for SE’s General Chemical category once every two years if a ground water source and once per three months every second year if a surface water or blended surface/groundwater source.  The General Chemical category includes analysis for alkalinity, bicarbonate, calcium, carbonate, chloride, conductivity, hardness (as CaCO3), magnesium, sodium, sulphate and total dissolved solids.

The last sample for General Chemical analysis was required on 2021 and submitted on February 1st, 2021. Sample results indicated that there were no exceedences of the provincial aesthetic objectives for the General Chemical category

*Objectives apply to certain characteristics of or substances found in water for human consumptive or hygienic use.  The presence of these substances will affect the acceptance of water by consumers and/or interfere with the practice of supplying good quality water.  Compliance with drinking water aesthetic objectives is not mandatory as these objectives are in the range where they do not constitute a health hazards.  The aesthetic objectives for several parameters (including hardness as CaCO3, magnesium, sodium and total dissolved solids) consider regional differences in drinking water sources and quality.
