Telephone

To participate in a Meeting via telephone, members of the public must register by calling Brooke Drechsler, Deputy Clerk at 613-479-2231 extension 231 and provide their name, phone number that they will be using to connect to the call, and the agenda item(s) they wish to speak to; Township staff will then contact the member of the public to confirm their participation and provide meeting details. Registration will close at 10:00 a.m. on the day of the meeting.


Please note that due to COVID-19 service limitations, public meetings associated with Planning Act applications (consent, minor variance, zoning by-law amendment, subdivision/condominium, etc.) are postponed until further notice. COVID-19 restrictions also mean that planning authorities, including the Committee of Adjustment, are unable to issue final decisions on planning applications that were previously submitted and circulated but where no decision was made. Staff are continuing to review applications and circulate to commenting agencies where applicable, however public notification and required meetings will not occur until provincial restrictions are lifted. 

Current Zoning By-law #55-19

Section 34 of the Planning Act gives the Township the authority to implement land use controls through Zoning By-Laws. A Zoning By-Law is used to implement the policies in the Official Plan. As a legal By-law document that is adopted by Council, a Zoning By-Law divides lands in the Township into specific areas or “zones” that are shown in the maps below.

How to Apply for a Zoning By-law/Official Plan Amendment

If you want to use or develop your property in a way that is not permitted in the Township Zoning By-law, you may apply for a Zoning By-law Amendment. Council will consider the Application after receiving comments from various agencies, the Community Planner from the County of Frontenac and the Committee of Adjustments.

An Official Plan amendment is a formal document that changes the Township’s Official Plan. Changes may be needed because of new circumstances in the community or requests made by property owners. If you want to use or develop your property in a way that conflicts with the Township’s Official Plan, an amendment to the plan would be required. Council will consider the Application after receiving comments from various agencies, the Community Planner from the County of Frontenac and the Committee of Adjustments.
