Friendly competition and Canada’s 150th birthday celebration could mean an extended Canada Day celebration in Norwich Township.  The municipality rotates its July first party every year and Mayor Larry Martin says it creates a sense of this year’s group trying to outdo last year’s group.  Because of the sesquicentennial, Martin says the party could span 3 days instead of the usual one day affair.  (Brian Donlevy)

South-West Oxford Council wants to take a detailed look at the recently negotiated land annexation deal between the City of Brantford and Brant County to see if there is any information that will help the township in their negotiations with Woodstock and Ingersoll.  One item that the Township wants clarified is the number of residential units that will be constructed per acre in the new areas of Brantford.  The numbers seem far lower than what SWOX is demanding from Woodstock.

Township of Norwich


Boundary adjustment talks are continuing between the City of Woodstock and the Township of Norwich.  Although they have met a couple of times they are still in the preliminary stages, identifying which lands could be involved in the annexation.  Areas that are being considered are the land locked triangle of Norwich Township near the Toyota plant and areas along the south side of Patullo Road.  Mayor Larry Martin says both sides are aware of the needs of the other.  Woodstock needs lands and Norwich needs to replace the income that the lands would provide in taxation.  They are scheduled to meet again in March. The only timeline for the talks would be the end of this year because municipalities cannot make land deals in an election year and voters go to the polls in 2018.  (Brian Donlevy)
