Due to an overwhelming increase in inquiries and application submissions, in order to prioritize the increased workload and maintain compliance with legislated timeframes, and as per Council’s direction, Building and Planning staff will only respond to zoning inquiries from a legal owner of the property.
As it pertains to general development inquiries, we ask that you please consult the Township’s by-law documents and mapping, which contains an extensive amount of information and may assist with your inquiry.
Development Permit By-law 04-180
Comprehensive Zoning By-law 04-181
Community Planning Permit By-law 2021-111
If you are a legal owner of a property, please email planning or building with your inquiries. For all inquiries, staff require the property roll number and/or address, a detailed (to scale) site plan of existing and proposed development, as well as details of your proposal. Staff will respond to submitted inquiries within 4-5 weeks.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.
Building Safety Month
We rarely question our safety when we are in the buildings that we live, work, shop or play in. This is because of the high standard in which buildings in Ontario are constructed. Building Services enforces the Building Code by examining building plans and specifications, issuing permits, and performing inspections through the various stages of construction.
Every May, the Township promotes Building Safety Month to raise awareness about building safety and the vital role of building officials. This year, the Ontario Building Officials Association's Building Safety Month campaign theme is, Top 10 Tips for Home Renovations. While Ontario is still practicing social distancing, homeowners can use this checklist to start planning for upcoming renos to homes and cottages.
