Upon closing of the field investigation, the final four properties, in addition to the explosion site property, were released to the Town of Caledon.
The process for these properties is similar to other area properties damaged by the explosion. Based on inspections by Town Building Inspectors, orders have been issued that these homes are currently unsafe to occupy.
Beginning today, these homeowners, along with their insurance agencies, will be granted access so that adjusters, engineers and/or other experts can assess any damage.
Once the homeowner is able to present the Town with an assessment of the property and a remediation plan (if necessary) the unsafe order will be lifted, and the owner will have full access to their home.
Given the damage sustained to these properties, this process is likely to take months to complete. For security and public safety purposes, these properties will be fenced until the unsafe orders are lifted.
Where needed, The Town of Caledon, with support from the Region of Peel, continues to provide supports to those families affected and displaced.
