The waterfront tanks under construction in Cornwall.
CORNWALL, Ontario – Trillium Distribution has appealed an interim control bylaw the city has in place that is prohibiting work on a controversial chemical tank project at the Cornwall Harbour.
City planning manager advised city council Monday night that a last-minute appeal of the bylaw was filed by the company.
“The appeal period concluded at the end of business on Friday,” said Alexander. “Just before the end of that day, there was an appeal of that control bylaw by Trillium.”
The next step will be a hearing before the Ontario Municipal Board, but Alexander said there is no date set yet for such a session.
In the meantime work appears to be suspended, as no crews have been at the property for weeks.
“The bylaw remains in effect. It’s a very powerful tool and remains in effect until the appeal,” said Alexander.
City council passed the interim control bylaw Dec. 9.
