The Right to Appeal
If a person or public body would otherwise have an ability to appeal the decision of the Council of the County of Peterborough in respect of the proposed OPA, to the Ontario Land Tribunal but the person or public body does not make oral submissions at a public meeting or make written submissions to the County of Peterborough or Township of Douro-Dummer before the approval authorities give or refuse to give approval to the OPA, the person or public body is not entitled to appeal the decision.

If a person or public body does not make oral submissions at a public meeting or make written submissions to the County of Peterborough in respect of the proposed OPA before the approval authorities make a decision regarding the amendments, the person or public body may not be added as a party to the hearing of an appeal before the Ontario Land Tribunal unless, in the opinion of the Tribunal, there are reasonable grounds to do so.
