CBM - Caledon Quarry

The Town has received a proposed Official Plan Amendment and Zoning By-law Amendment application for a quarry.

The quarry is a Class A, below-water table quarry, meaning that the proposal is to remove more than 20,000 tonnes of bedrock aggregate annually, from below the water table. Based on the application received, the proposed tonnage limit for the proposed CBM Caledon Pit / Quarry is 2.5 million tonnes per year and on average CBM anticipates shipping approximately 2.0 million tonnes per year once operations are in full production. The application also indicates removal of the rock in the quarry will include blasting using controlled explosives.

Application Material and Information

Official Plan Amendment

The Official Plan Amendment application proposes to redesignate the lands in the Town Official Plan from General Agricultural Area, Rural Lands and Environmental Policy Area to:

  • Extractive Industrial B to permit above and below water table aggregate resource extraction; and,
  • Environmental Policy Area to protect the existing tributary (watercourse) in the north-west corner of the site.

Official Plan Amendment (Draft)

Zoning By-law Amendment

The Zoning By-law Amendment application proposes to rezone the lands from Agricultural (A1) and Environmental Policy Area 2 Zone (EPA2) to Extractive Industrial – Exception XX (MX-XX) and Environmental Policy Area 1 Zone – Exception 487 (EPA1–487). The Extractive Industrial zone would permit the quarry and extraction, while the EPA1–487 zone allows the area to be licensed but no extraction permitted. The EPA1-487 zone aligns with the proposed Environmental Policy Area to protect the existing tributary in the north-west corner of the site.
