St. Mathew's Mar Thoma Church has received Halton Regional Council approval to build a 13,300 sq. ft. church on a 49-acre property on Hwy. 25, about half a kilometre north of Five Sideroad (Campbellville Rd). Both the Official Plan and zoning will be changed to allow the one-storey building, similar in size to Hillcrest Church, which will serve about 140 families of Indian descent with an Anglican Christian-based faith. The congregation, which is hoping to re-locate from Markham will serve families from the Guelph, London, Kitchener-Waterloo, Hamilton and the Greater Toronto Area. The site was chosen because it would provide a central location . The church is not proposing any outdoor functions and there will be parking for 165 cars. The existing house on the property will remain. The majority of opposition to the proposal concerned traffic on Regional Rd. 25, and regional staff report suggested the installation of a northbound left-turn lane near Chudleigh's Apple Farm this year, will help to alleviate some of the congestion.
