Prior to submitting an application for an Official Plan Amendment, Zoning Bylaw Amendment, Plan of Subdivision or Plan of Condominium, Site Plan Control, Severance or Easement, applicants are required to attend a pre-consultation meeting. A pre-consultation meeting gathers all of the applicable review agencies (such as Niagara Region and the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority) and Township departments to review development proposals and identify any studies or additional information that is required to be submitted with a complete application. A pre-consultation meeting does not imply or suggest any decision on behalf of Township staff, Council or the Committee of Adjustment to either support or refuse any application. The failure to submit an application without going through the pre-consultation process will result in a delay in the processing of the application.

Though not a requirement, it is recommended to consult with the Planning Technician prior to submitting an application for a Minor Variance.

Pre-consultation meetings are held at the Township offices on the second and fourth Thursday of the month from 9 am until noon. When you are ready for a pre-consultation meeting, please complete the pre-consultation meeting request form and submit to the Planning Department at least 10 days in advance of the scheduled meeting date. The Planner will make arrangements to include you on the requested agenda and you will receive confirmation of meeting dates and times by phone or email.
