City and junk yard face off in zoning scrap

By Devyn Barrie, StittsvilleCentral, February 8, 2017

A four-year-old zoning scrap between the City of Ottawa and a Goulbourn scrapyard could wind up back in court, as the area’s city councillor criticizes what he says is “blatant” noncompliance by yard management.

The controversy for Cash for Trash at 7628 Flewellyn Road surrounds how it uses its 50-acre property. The facility opened in 2012, much to the displeasure of residents who live nearby. The business salvages old vehicles, stripping them for useful parts and storing old wrecked vehicles on site. A large fire broke out in the scrapyard in July 2015.
