About 125 Peel Street

On February 22, 2021, the Town of The Blue Mountains announced the purchase of 125 Peel Street in Thornbury. The 32-acre property was identified as a property of interest and strategic location for a range of potential uses due to its proximity to Highway 26 and the Tomahawk Recreational Complex.

About the Community Campus of Care

Through an innovative and unique partnership, the Town is working with the Province of Ontario and the Ministry of Long Term Care to develop a new 160 bed long-term care facility within the Community Campus of Care. 

Minister's Zoning Order

The Town will be seeking a Minister's Zoning Order to accelerate the design and construction of the Community Campus of Care at 125 Peel Street, Thornbury.

A Minister's Zoning Order (MZO) is part of Ontario's Planning Act. An MZO allows the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing to decide how a piece of land is used, bypassing the traditional methods used in a municipality. Projects approved through an MZO must still abide by the Provincial Policy Statement. Site plan review and approval will remain under the jurisdiction of the Town.

For more information specific to the Town's MZO request, please refer to the MZO Frequently Asked Questions document.

More information about the MZO process can be found in Section 47 of the Ontario Planning Act.
