PUSLINCH – The fight against a large trucking headquarters proposed for Aberfoyle is not over. 

An appeal has been filed with the Ontario Land Tribunal (OLT) over Puslinch council’s decision to approve the rezone 128 Brock Rd. S. which would permit a trucking headquarters at the 15-acre property consisting of a 200,000 square foot warehouse, three-storey office building, 21 loading bays and a large parking area for 170 employees and 123 tractors and trailers. 

Puslinch council approved the rezoning at a July meeting after months of push back by Aberfoyle residents who said it would not fit the character as it is at the entrance of a residential area, noise and the impact it would have locally on traffic. 

According to an OLT document, the appeal was filed on Aug. 4 by Galajda Law on behalf of a client. 

The reasons for the appeal are: the proposed permitted uses will generate traffic that is not appropriate for the area, the proposed permitted uses will generate noise that is not appropriate for the area and “such other planning grounds as may be presented to the tribunal.”

“My client is of the opinion that the application does not constitute good land use planning,” the OLT document reads.

No hearing dates have been set for this case.
