Official Plan Review

In August 2019, The township held a special public meeting under Section 26 of the Planning Act to determine if an Official Plan Review was required. The outcome of this meeting is that Council provided direction to prepared a new Official Plan for South Frontenac.

Section 26 Presentation - Official Plan Review

In the months of September & October of 2019, the Township hosted a series of Open Houses in order to collect feedback and input on their vision for a new Official Plan for South Frontenac. The Township also released a survey to obtain input from members of the public who were not able to attend the open houses in person. 

Open House Presentation - Fall 2019

The results from the Official Plan open houses and survey results were shared with South Frontenac Council in January 2020.

During 2020, Township staff worked with County staff and consultants to prepare background studies to help support the Official Plan resulting in population, housing and employment growth allocations. 

Due to COVID 19 and provincial emergency orders, the public consultation and policy development component of the Official Plan process was delayed.

The Township will be re-initiating this project in 2021 and will be engaging a planning consulting firm in 2021 to assist Township staff in preparing a new Official Plan for South Frontenac. 

The RFP will be released in January 2021.

There will be more public engagement activities to come in 2021 - stay tuned!
