Advantages of this property

Year round road access

Roads are maintained by the City of Timmins

Electrical power is available along both roads and can be brought into the property.

Just over 3,200 meters of frontage on the lake following the shoreline.

Potential for development into seasonal recreational waterfront lots.

A rough estimate says you can probably get 42 seasonal recreational waterfront lots with 50 meters (164 feet frontage).

A depth of 125  meters (410 feet deep).

These sizes make the lots 0.62 Hectares in size (1 1/2 acres).

The 42 lots would absorb only 63 acres and the rest of the property of approximately 400 acres can be split into 10 additional lots with access to the lake if you leave 1 of the 42 lots as legal access to the lake for the 10 large properties.

There are two ways that you could develop this property.

One is as a plan of subdivision.

The other is as a vacant land condominium.

The consenting authority for either type of development is the City Of Timmins.




Repayment terms can be flexible.

Will take conditional offer on financing or on getting a plan registered.

THE SELLER also owns the VILLARS BAY RESORT CAMPGROUND so any buyer of this property will be required to sign a non-competition agreement wherein they agree to not open or develop a campground on this property. This non-competition agreement will be a condition of the sale.

3.4.1 Intent of Designation

The Resource Development Area designation, as shown on Schedule “A” – Land Use Plan, is intended to provide areas for land use activities or uses which may be incompatible with those found in other land use designations, which require large tracts of land, which involve resource-related activities or are centered on the natural uses recognizing the potential of the natural environment. It is the intent of this Plan to protect and sustainably manage as much of the renewable and non-renewable natural resource base as is realistically possible for resource and resource-related land use activities for short or long term economic utilization. The policies of this Plan recognize the importance of managing lands with the potential for one or more resource uses, the need to minimize land use conflicts, the need to restore land for subsequent land uses and the need for stewardship of natural heritage features and areas and the natural environment.

3.4.2 Permitted Uses

A broad range of uses is contemplated by this designation including, but not limited to, mining activities, forestry activities, mineral aggregate operations, peat extraction, agricultural operations, resource-related uses, tourism and recreational uses, storage facilities, transportation facilities, infrastructure corridors, waste disposal and recycling facilities and limited residential development. An amendment to the Zoning By-law may be required for any proposed mineral mining operation or mineral aggregate operation.

3.4.3 Waterfront Development

Waterfront development in the Resource Development Area, including seasonal and permanent residential uses and commercial uses, will only be permitted where there is demonstrated capacity of the water body to accommodate the intended development and in compliance with Section 3.4.5 – Planning Principles. More specifically, development on lakes identified to be near or at capacity or identified to be a cold water lake trout lake may only be permitted where an impact report indicates that such development will not result in a decline in the water quantity or quality of the lake or water body (i.e. through increased phosphorus loading enrichment, a reduction in oxygen levels or water taking), except on existing lots of record.

A lake capacity plan, where prepared, shall use provincially acceptable modeling techniques for determining lake capacity. Lake capacity plans may be prepared by the proponent of the development, by the municipality or through a partnership i.e. lake association, municipality, private interest. Priority will be given to preparing lake capacity plans for lakes facing development pressures in the municipality.

The design and development or redevelopment of shoreline properties shall also include provision for the establishment and/or retention of the natural features and shoreline (riparian) vegetation.

Development setbacks shall be implemented as a measure to conserve shoreline features, protect the ecological functions of the shorelines and water bodies and protect property against damage from natural hazards.

In the design and development of waterfront areas, the City will ensure that provision is made for public access to shorelines. This may be achieved through the retention of shore road allowances, retention
