Draft Official Plan - July 2018

Highlights of Plan


An official plan deals mainly with issues such as:

  • where new housing, industry, offices and shops will be located;
  • what services like roads, watermains, sewers, parks and schools will be needed;
  • when, and in what order, parts of your community will grow;
  • how to preserve and enhance cultural, historical and recreational services and amenities; and
  • outline community improvement initiatives.
  • The current Official Plan can be found here

It is a requirement of the Planning Act that all municipalities review their Official Plan every five years to ensure compliance and conformity with provincial policy, and matters of provincial interest (Section 26.[1] of the Planning Act).
