About the Official Plan Review

The Official Plan guides all future land-use decisions in the Town, including residential and commercial development, the type of permitted housing, density and intensification standards, and how agricultural and natural features will be protected. The Ontario Planning Act requires that a Municipality regularly update their Official Plan to remain current with County and Provincial planning documents, and to provide an opportunity to update the Plan with recent municipal direction, approved plans and other policies.
