The Planning Department is responsible for the development of the land use planning documents that guide growth and development within the Township. We're also responsible for the provision of information on the permitted uses for your property and the processing of planning applications submitted for any changes or development of properties within the municipality.
Feel free to contact the Planning Department if you have any questions with respect to the zoning on your property and the permitted uses thereon, or if you need assistance with an application for an Official Plan Amendment, Zoning By-law Amendment, Severance and/or Minor Variance Application.
We've created a Development Guide to provide information to property owners/residents and developers looking to develop in the community. This guide will help you to understand the often-lengthy and complicated processes that are involved in developing. The guide will also help you become more familiar with some of the documents that are used by the municipality to ensure the community develops according to the appropriate guidelines. The Planning Act, Provincial Policy Statement, County Official Plan, Township Official Plan & Zoning By-law must all be considered when processing your applications.
