NOTE:  Severances

If you require a Severance (Application for Consent), the application is to be completed in full and first forwarded to and reviewed by Township Staff (includes Planner's Report), and then submitted to the Elgin County Land Division Committee with a fee.  A copy of the application for severance can be downloaded here, picked up at the Municipal Office or at the County of Elgin Offices at 450 Sunset Drive, St. Thomas, Ontario N5R 5V1 (519) 631-1460.  

NOTE:  Effective January 1, 2013, when you apply and are granted a severance, if the properties are currently serviced by a Community Mail Box, Canada Post will now be included as part of the circulation process done by County Land Division and will charge the applicant a $200 Community Mail Box Fee for the new property.

This is NOT a charge by the Township of Southwold.

If you need clarification on this issue, please contact Canada Post.
