June 19, 2020 – The Township of Douro-Dummer Municipal Office remains closed to the public due to COVID-19. During this situation, planning applications are being accepted and processed, however in a slightly different manner.

Pre-Consultation/Application
Pre-consultation is a mandatory requirement prior to the Township accepting a formal planning application. Please complete the Pre-Consultation Application Form (pdf – 131KB). To sign this form digitally, please open it in Adobe Reader.

Once the Township receives the completed form staff will be in contact to arrange for the virtual pre-consultation by telephone or video conference.

Submitting Application
Given the circumstances and the requirement for maintaining social distancing, completed applications will be required to be commissioned prior to being submitted to the Township (most lawyers do this by appointment and for a fee). Completed applications will be required to be submitted by email to C. McMillan and a hard copy, along with the Township fee and Otonabee Conservation fee (if applicable) to the Township Office by mail or by dropping off in the Township Drop Box.

Until further notice, all Public Meetings will be held by virtual meeting. The public can participate by watching on an electronic device and, if so desired, make statements and/or ask questions. Details of how the public can participate will be described in the Notice that is sent to various agencies and property owners within the prescribed area of the subject property.

Meetings will be recorded and live-streamed on the Township’s YouTube Channel. If a member of the public is not able to participate in the virtual public meeting, but still wish to make a written statement, their comments can be submitted by email to the Township Clerk.

Zoning By-law Amendment or Minor Variance Applications are available on the Township’s website.

Additional information relating to submitting a planning application may be obtained by contacting the undersigned.
