Official Plan

The municipality is currently reviewing its Official Plan. Learn more 

Get involved! Visit the County’s public engagement website to review the draft Official Plan and offer your feedback.

An official plan describes policies on how land in your community should be used. It is prepared with input from the public and helps to ensure that planning and development meets the community’s needs now and in the future. 

The County’s Official Plan guides how the County of Prince Edward will grow and develop over the next 25 years. Information for the Official Plan for Prince Edward County can be found below.

The current OP is nearly 20 years old and much has changed since its adoption by County Council in 1993, including the amalgamation of 10 local governments into a single tier municipality in 1998. While there have been various amendments over the years, many policies do not reflect existing conditions and challenges. A list of resources relating to the Official Plan review can be found below, including:
