Official Plan Review

​​​An Official Plan provides a vision for future growth and generally guides where new homes, schools, businesses and parks should be located. It includes policies with respect to the location of new services such as roads and sewers as well as for protecting our natural and built heritage.

The Planning Act mandates that municipalities review and update their official plans every five years. This review process at the Town was started early in 2014, and a Public Meeting was held during the June 3, 2014 Town Council meeting. Staff also held informal consultations in the summer of 2014; however, changes and reviews at other levels of government caused the review of the Town's Official Plan to be suspended for a few years. In 2016, the Town engaged MMM Group to carry out a phased review and update of the Town's 2002 Official Plan.​

The Official Plan was finally adopted by Council on March 2, 2021. The 2021 Official Plan was approved by the County of Simcoe in March 2023 and it is now in force.
