Concrete Batch Plant

At their meeting on April 17th, 2024 the Cochrane Planning Commission approved the building permit application for a 2,500 square foot concrete batch plant to be built on the site of the existing gravel pit. The Town of Cochrane (ToC) posted a sign on the roundabout closest to the gravel pit that generated several emails to the Town’s Administration. As a result, the plant owners, Heidelberg Materials, made several changes to their initial plan.

However, there was no forum for in person discussions and it appears that many of our residents were unaware of the proposal until after the Planning Commission approved the permit. There are also many unanswered questions. One of our residents, Paul Trotter, is organizing a group to launch an appeals process. Please click on this link to see Paul’s latest email updates.

Paul and/or a member of the Appeals Team will be speaking at the Gleneagles Community Association’s AGM on Wednesday, May 15th, 2024. We also hope to have a representative from the Town of Cochrane to provide their perspective. An information booth will open prior to the meeting at 6:30 pm and will re-open at 8:30 pm after the AGM to listen to your concerns and to answer your questions.
