Today the Ausable Bayfield Conservation Authority (ABCA) released the Draft Shoreline Management Plan (SMP). The draft plan includes draft development guidelines and policies for proposed shore protection structures by proponents. Updates to the draft, not in the current plan, provide newer information on shoreline recession rates, ensure local policies and application of the Regulation conform to Province of Ontario policy and keep policies current in light of emerging land use trends. The draft plan identifies shoreline hazards for flooding, erosion, and dynamic beaches and their impact on shoreline development. Click: HERE to review the SMP
