Norval Quarry Stakeholder Update

Please be advised that a settlement has been reached between the City of Brampton and Brampton Brick that has resulted in the complete withdrawal of the rezoning and licensing applications and Ontario Municipal Board appeals.  The City’s development file on this matter is now closed.   New applications would be required if Brampton Brick seeks to re-visit a quarry operation at this site in the future.


As part of the settlement, all existing permissions of the Official Plan and the Greenbelt Plan continue to apply to the subject lands.


The settlement also requires the City through proposed policy amendments to the Official Plan to consider whether any portion of the subject lands that are currently part of the Protected Countryside designation may be appropriate for a request to the Province for potential removal from the Greenbelt Plan.  These proposed policy amendments will be presented as part of a full public process at the time of the next Official Plan review and are subject to Council review and approval.


Questions about the settlement should be directed to Mr. David Waters by email ( or phone (905-874-2074).

Peel’s 2018 Water Meter Replacement program starts today



MISSISSAUGA, ON, (Apr. 10, 2018) – The Region of Peel is conducting a Water Meter Replacement program as part of the ongoing maintenance of the region’s water meter system.


Starting April 10, homeowners with old water meters in the Mississauga area can expect a letter from the Region to set up a mandatory replacement appointment. There is no charge to residents for the meter replacement.


The purpose of the program is to replace outdated meters that have been in service for 20 years or more. The replacement involves removing the old meter from inside your home and replacing it with a new meter and reading device.
Peel has contracted Neptune Technology Group Canada Ltd. to conduct the replacements. Residents who receive this letter are asked to contact Neptune to book an appointment.
Appointments are available Monday to Friday between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. and Saturday between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m.
The meter replacement takes approximately one hour or less and an adult of at least 18 years of age must be home at the time of installation.
To book an appointment call 905-542-0666 or 1-800-667-4387 or visit
