Turbines

Click Here to sign PC Party Petition

Preneal Canada Inc. is proposing to develop over 200 Wind Turbines on the Bruce Peninsula in the Mar to Lindsay Road 20, Hwy 6, corridor.  There is a strong action group of concerned citizens opposing the turbines and have so far, after much protest, successfully convinced the Northern Bruce Peninsula Council to pass a motion for “No More Wind Turbines on the Bruce Peninsula”.

Does this really mean “No More Wind Turbines on the Bruce Peninsula”, when the Green Energy Act has taken power away from local governments?

The Bruce Peninsula Wind Turbine Action Group has a great website providing a tremendous amount of information about the impact of wind turbines on health, real estate, environment and wildlife.

This site also provides the proposed Wind Farm locations, which you will find here.

Here are their links to reports on how Wind Turbines affect Real Estate.

The PC government has an on-going Moratorum and they are inviting people to sign their petition.  Click on the Wind Turbine photo above to sign their petition.

Will we have additional Wind Turbines on the Peninsula or won’t we?  How this will affect potential buyer’s, is yet to be seen.

I hope you find this information to be helpful.

Northern Bruce Peninsula Trailer By-Law

Trailer

Many people looking to purchase vacant land ask if they can park their trailer or RV and camp on their property once they purchase it.   I have the dubious responsibility to inform everyone purchasing vacant property that you can not occupy a trailer, bunky or even camp on your vacant property.

This is a Municipal and Peninsula wide by-law…including both Northern Bruce Peninsula and South Bruce Peninsula (Wiarton area).  I do not make the rules, I am only the messenger!

If you do occupy a trailer or camp on a vacant lot without the express knowledge and agreement of the Muncipality you can be asked to cease and desist and/or you can be fined.  The Municipality will allow you to occupy a trailer on the property once you have a building permit and have paid a bond (currently it’s $2,000).  They do recognize that most people do not live in the area and will allow camping on the property during the building process so that you can oversee the construction of your home or cottage.  There is a time limit of 1 year (which can be extended for another year) and at the end of construction when the trailer is removed they will refund half of the bond.

Click on the “Trailer” photo above for the complete Trailer By-Law, including fines.

If you have an existing residential home or cottage, you can have up to two tents/trailers/motor homes on the property and they can be occupied for up to 7 consecutive days at one time.  You need permission from the Municipality for more than two occupied units, for special occasions or longer occupancy.  See Schedule A of the By-Law.

All buyers  need to be informed of all factors that affect a property so that they can make an educated and wise decision whether they want to buy or not.  The Trailer By-law can affect your decision to buy.
