Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing allows phase 1 of Midhurst development to move forward

MARKHAM, ON, Nov. 29, 2012 /CNW/ - The Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing (MMAH) withdrew part of its appeal of the Midhurst Secondary Plan yesterday. The approval allows the first phase of development to proceed.

Spokesperson for the Midhurst Landowners Group, Cheryl Shindruk said, "We are very pleased with this decision. It will allow development to move forward in an orderly manner over time and in doing so generate needed jobs and economic activity for the region, while protecting and preserving hundreds of acres of environmental lands."

In 1982 Midhurst was first designated a settlement area. The Township of Springwater adopted the Secondary Plan on November 3, 2008 in accordance with its Official Plan, which was approved by MMAH in 1998. "The process dates back some 30 years," said Shindruk. "This approval is in compliance with provincial laws and statutes and meets local planning needs and objectives."

The Midhurst Landowners Group consists of Geranium Corporation and RoseAlliance, a partnership of Rose Corporation and Alliance Homes.  Shindruk notes, "We have the right people for this remarkable development."

Geranium Homes is a national award-winning developer and builder, winner of the 2011 Canadian Home Builders' Association Grand Sam Award and BILD Homebuilder of the Year in 2012.  Alliance Homes is a renowned "total quality" home builder active across Simcoe County.
