Rural Policy and Zoning Review

The Rural Policy and Zoning Review is being undertaken to identify the changes that would need to be made to the Town’s Official Plan, with regards to the Natural Heritage System, Agricultural System and mineral aggregate resources in order to bring it into conformity with the Regional Official Plan (ROPA 38).

As part ofthese amendments, the Town will consider how to implement the new Regional Natural Heritage System, which affects a considerable amount of land in the Town and when applicable may have an impact on new development proposed on properties affected by these changes. Depending on the type and location of the proposed development an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) may be required as part of the development application process.



Please visit the Town's website for more information and access the documents in the Library section to learn more about the project.
