Have your say!

Public feedback is critical to ensuring that the new Official Plan will serve the community well now and for years to come. A revised draft Official Plan based on the community feedback and related documents are now available for public review and comment. 

You can provide feedback on the revised draft Official Plan online or by writing to us using the mailing address at the bottom of this page (see ‘Contact Us’). If you would like to participate in or keep up-to-date on the Official Plan Update process, please check back here or subscribe to our blog for news updates.
