Essa to make $46k to allow fill from Treetops development

Posted July 4, 2017

Cable Bridge Enterprises (Biffis - Treetops) has requested an exemption from Essa's fill bylaw to place 55,000 cubic metres of topsoil from its subdivision land in Alliston to 5696 Hwy 89, in the Township. It would be spread across approximately 21 acres, to a depth of two feet, requiring 5,500 truckloads.

"Once the topsoil is placed, they indicate that the field will be easier to cultivate," according to the report to Essa council recommending the exemption.

Essa's fill by-law fee is $2,500, plus $0.80 per cubic metre, for a total of $46,500 in this case.
