New Official Plan approved by province

July 9, 2021

The County’s new Official Plan has received final approval from Steve Clark, Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing.

The Official Plan, as approved with modifications by the Minister, came into effect July 8, 2021. The Official Plan approval is final and not subject to appeal.

The new Official Plan, adopted by County Council in February 2021, includes a number of key policies aimed at building strong communities, protecting natural heritage systems, protecting agricultural resources, and protecting human health and safety when considering development in the County.

The Minister made 11 minor modifications to the Official Plan. The modifications ensure consistency with the Provincial Policy Statement (PPS) 2020 and other applicable legislation and regulations. Modifications include changes to policies related to accessory dwelling units, aggregate resources, employment lands, and other areas of provincial interest.

Any planning-related matters from July 8, 2021 onward will be subject to the new Official Plan. Visit the Planning page to view the final version of the new Official Plan.
