WHAT IS AN OFFICIAL PLAN?

  • A comprehensive document which contains goals, policies, and land use schedules.
  • A 25-year policy framework for land use decisions.
  • Sets the context for detailed planning and provision of municipal services.
  • Indicates where housing, agriculture, industry, commercial and retail land uses will be located.

WHY IS THE OFFICIAL PLAN BEING REVIEWED?

Municipalities generally update their official plans every 5 years to ensure that the Official Plan:

  • Conforms to the County of Middlesex official plan.
  • Reflects matters of provincial interest.
  • Is consistent with the Provincial Policy Statement (PPS).

THE TOWNSHIP OFFICIAL PLAN REVIEW PROCESS WILL:

  • Consider new provincial legislation, regulations and policies.
  • Review County policy direction implemented through the recent review of the County official plan.
  • Include meaningful community engagement.
