TEMPLATE Letter for Members to Use to Submit Responses to ERO Posting on Growth Plan February 13, 2019
The government has submitted a proposal to make Modifications to O. Reg. 311/06 (Transitional Matters - Growth Plans) made under the Places to Grow Act, 2005 to implement the Proposed Amendment to the Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe, 2017. OSSGA has made the point to the government that the current policy framework is not working. Approvals for new mineral aggregate operations in Southern Ontario are taking up to 10 years to complete the process. There are too many overlapping policies and inconsistent approaches between the Provincial Plans, Regional Official Plans, Local Official Plans and Conservation Authority policies regarding the management of this essential non-renewable resource.

Axle Weight Project Update

October 11, 2017 at 11:58 AM

The MTO has committed to opening scales for the sole purpose of collecting data points for the OSSGA axle weight project. The lights at the scale will NOT be on or flashing as this would cause a traffic back-up. Trucks must enter the scale when the lights are off. They will then be weighed, recorded and be on their way. This should take just a few minutes.

If you have or hire truckers that are part of the OSSGA pilot program, who run past the Trafalgar TIS or the Gravenhurst TIS, please instruct them to be weighed at one of the dates provided.

It is very important that we collect this data.

If you have any questions please contact Mike Scott at mscott@ossga.com
