Milton Quarry East Extension, Halton Hills (Dufferin Aggregates)

Breadcrumbs
 
The Milton Quarry (original, extension, and east components) straddles the Nassagaweya-Esquesing Townline in the Towns of Milton and Halton Hills.  Active extraction only occurs on that portion of the quarry in Halton Hills.  On December 20, 2021, Halton Region received Dufferin’s application to amend the Regional Official Plan.  The application proposes to expand the extraction areas to the east of the existing quarry.

Application Status

Halton Region deemed the application complete on January 18, 2022.  The application is currently under technical review by Halton Region, Town of Halton Hills, Town of Milton, Conservation Halton, and Niagara Escarpment Commission through a Joint Agency Review Team (JART) framework.  Halton Region continues to be engaged with Dufferin Aggregates Co. through the JART process.

Regional Council is responsible for making a decision on the proposed Regional Official Plan Amendment. The Ministry of Northern Development, Mines, Natural Resources and Forestry (external link) , through the Aggregate Resources Act (external link) approval process, is ultimately responsible for making a decision on the quarry expansion.

Halton Region 45-day Objection Letter

On May 6, 2022, the Region’s Chief Planning Official issued a Letter of Objection to the Aggregate Resources Act Licence Application outlining a series of concerns related to the proposed quarry expansion.  Concerns identified in this letter were informed by the review of technical reports and studies submitted in support of the application by staff and retained consultants. The same concerns were submitted on May 6, 2022, in response to the Environmental Registry of Ontario posting # 019-5305.
