Official Plan Review

The Town is reviewing its Official Plan; a document used to manage growth and determine how land in the community should be used.


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).

The Official Plan Review Project will follow a schedule and process outlined in three phases.  To learn about these phases and at what stage the Town of Huntsville is at, click this link.
