Peterborough County is developing a new Official Plan and has asked for input from the public.

An excerpt from the New County Official Plan website:

The County Official Plan provides direction and guidance on how land in the County of Peterborough will be used, and provides policy to ensure that future development will meet the needs of the community. Currently it also functions as the lower tier Official Plan for four local municipalities.

In 2017, the County initiated the development of a new Official Plan; one that is more user-friendly, and meets both Provincial and local directives. It is being developed with input from County and Township Councils, public agencies and members of the public. Once the new Official Plan is in effect, it will function as the lower tier Official Plan for five local municipalities:

Township of Asphodel-Norwood
Township of Douro-Dummer
Township of North Kawartha
Township of Selwyn
Municipality of Trent Lakes

To kick-off the process of creating a new Official Plan, open houses will be hosted throughout the County during the week of July 24, 2017. At these open houses we aim to find out what is important to you and the larger community. These will be opportunities to find out how the Official Plan works, ask questions, and share ideas.

You are welcome to attend any of the Open Houses.

The Planning Department is available at any time throughout this process to answer questions you may have. Contact us by calling 705-743-0380 or by emailing the Planning Department.
