Local Official Plan Approvals

​​​​​​​​​Municipalities are required to update their Official Plans every 10 years to ensure that it; conforms with provincial and regional (County) plans or does not conflict with them, has regard to the matters of provincial interest, and is consistent with provincial policy statements issued by the Minister.  This constitutes the Provincial plan conformity exercise identified in Section 26(2.1) of the Planning Act.  The County of Simcoe is the Approval Authority for all local municipal Official Plans as per Section 17 of the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, c.P.13, as amended.  The local Official Plans take effect upon County Council approving the Official Plan as adopted, or through the approval of a modified Official Plan, and if no appeals to the Local Planning Appeals Tribunal (LPAT) are received.

For each of the local municipalities that have adopted a new Official Plan which has been approved by the County, the County has posted copies of the related County staff report recommending approval, including all related schedules.   Where the approval of a local Official Plan has been appealed to the LPAT, information related to the appeal has also been made available.
