Planning Department


The purpose of the Planning Department is to provide professional advisory services to Council, Committees, staff and ratepayers respecting development, planning and environmental matters, in an efficient and effective manner.

The Planning Department provides advice to Council and Committees relating to:

  • Long range planning issues, such as the Official Plan and lake plans
  • Applications before the Committee of Adjustment regarding consents (severances) and minor variances
  • Applications before Council regarding by-law amendments to either the Development Permit By-law (04-180) or the Comprehensive Zoning By-law (04-181) property-specific variations to the Development Permit, plans of subdivision, and site plan approval.

The Planning Department provides advice to landowners relating to development proposals for their property, and whether the proposal conforms to the Official Plan or either of the Township by-laws.  Please contact us at (705) 635-2272 if you have any questions.
