Building and Planning Department

Building and Construction

Building permits are required to protect the interests of both individuals and the community as a whole. By reviewing and approving building plans before any work is done, and by carrying out inspections while construction is underway, building staff can ensure that buildings comply with:

  • The Ontario Building Code
  • The local zoning by-law and other planning controls on buildings
  • Other applicable legislation, including conservation authority approvals and certain requirements under the Environmental Protection Act

Planning

Land use planning helps determine where in the township, homes, businesses, and industries should be built. It assists with the locating of parks, schools, roads, sewers and other essential services.

The Planning Department is responsible for making sure that present and future land uses follow Ontario planning rules.

Good planning balances the interests of property owners with the interests of the community as a whole.

We understand that planning can be a complicated matter. If you require assistance, please contact the Planning Department regarding Township planning responsibilities.
