WHAT IS AN OFFICIAL PLAN?
The Municipality’s Official Plan is a comprehensive document, which contains goals, policies, and land use schedules. The Official Plan is a 25-year policy framework for land use decisions and sets the context for detailed planning and provision of municipal services. The Official Plan indicates where housing, agriculture, industry, commercial and retail land uses will be located. We review our Official Plan to ensure that it conforms with the latest provincial policies and the County of Middlesex Official Plan, and to consider recent municipal planning studies and reports.

For more information about this matter, contact Planner Abby Heddle at @email or the undersigned at the Municipal Office, 229 Parkhill Main Street, Parkhill during regular office hours. Please phone ahead (519)294-6244 to schedule an appointment.
