The Planning Department provides support to Council and the Committee of Adjustment on all land use planning matters.  The department is responsible for the administration, review and processing of various development applications submitted under the Planning Act and the preparation of policies and regulations to guide future land use in the Township.


Land use planning helps to shape the Township and decide where homes and business should be built, where parks and schools should be located and where roads should be provided. The Planning Department manages the Township’s Official Plan (our long-term vision for the Township), the Zoning Bylaw (permitted uses and location, size and height of buildings), as well as amendments to these documents. Both the Official Plan and Zoning Bylaw are documents that can and are expected to be changed over time.


Our goal is to provide you with the best possible service. We welcome your inquiries over the phone, via email or at the Township offices. The Planning Department can be reached Monday – Friday 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. Please call ahead for an appointment as dropping by the office without an appointment may result in waiting for the Planner or Planning Technician to be available.
