Development Planning

​​​​​​​Picture of Row Housing backing onto a lakeThe County of Simcoe is one of the fastest growing counties in Ontario.  This keeps our staff and member municipalities very busy processing a substantial number of development applications annually.

The County is involved from two perspectives. First, the County is the approval authority for all local municipal official plans/amendments, as well as for subdivisions and condominiums for the Township of Severn and Township of Tiny. Second, the County is a commenting agency to ensure County interests and by-laws are appropriately addressed. Prior to initiating any condominium, subdivision, or any other type of development application, the County strongly recommends pre-consultation as outlined below. 



To view study requirements or to submit development applications to the County, please visit the Development Applications and Fees webpage.
