Letter from the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal
Due to impacts of COVID-19, we recently received correspondence from the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal regarding the operational changes the Tribunal will implement pursuant to the Government of Ontario’s Emergency Order, dated March 20, 2020.
Please note that while the LPAT hearing will be on hold, Ramara Legacy Alliance will not be. There is plenty to be done in the coming months to prepare for the hearing.
