Paris Plains Pit – Site Plan Application

The proposed Paris Plains Pit would provide a source of high-quality aggregate materials for construction and infrastructure projects across Southwestern Ontario including Brant County and the Region of Waterloo.

The 311-acre site would be located at the intersection of Paris Plains Church Rd. and Pinehurst Rd., approximately 2km north of Paris, Ontario. 

The application is for extraction of 1 million tonnes of aggregate per year above the water table, with progressive rehabilitation back to agriculture. 

The review process has just started. We will continue to engage with our neighbours and the broader public in the review of the proposed Paris Plains Pit. Both the Aggregate Resources Act and Planning Act applications provide for extensive public notification and consultation.
