Public Information Centre: 31 Earle Street

The Corporation of the Town of Tillsonburg intends to sever the south portion of the municipally-owned land at 31 Earle Street comprising approximately three (3) acres of land. The land is proposed to be severed to allow for the development of a multi-residential apartment building that is proposed to include affordable housing options, such as Attainable Employee Housing. In order to facilitate the proposed project, the lands are required to be re-designated from ‘Low Density Residential’ and ‘Environmental Protection’ to ‘High Density Residential’, as well as rezoned from ‘Minor Institutional’ to ‘High Density Residential.’
