Mr. Chorazy and Mrs. Chipman have applied to amend the existing zoning of a parcel of land in Part Lot 20, Concession 4, in the former Township of Dummer, (now the Dummer Ward of the Township of Douro-Dummer) in the County of Peterborough.

The lands in question are currently zoned Rural (RU) Zone.
