Official Plan Review

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The Municipality of Central Elgin is undertaking a review of its Official Plan (OP), a central guiding document that provides the framework for growth, development, and protection of built and natural heritage assets across the municipality to 2046 (25 year time-horizon). The project launched in Spring 2021, and is scheduled to be completed by early 2022.

The updated Official Plan will build on the direction taken in our current Plan, and will be informed by a range of background studies to help us understand how future growth and development will shape our communities. We are also planning for the impacts of a changing climate and economy, and the shifting needs of all those who live, work, and visit Central Elgin.

We know that people living and working in Central Elgin are passionate and eager to help us build a healthy, resilient, and vibrant future, and we look forward to hearing from you as we work together to create out collective vision!

    We've added the a new document called "Growing Together Central Elgin Official Plan Update - Phan 1 Engagement Summary".

    Document Overview

    Phase 1 of updating the Official Plan is the Project Launch phase. This phase consisted of developing the vision, opportunities and challenges for growth to 2046 for Central Elgin, which were identified and discussed with stakeholders, Council and the public. The Municipality also identified key policy themes that will be addressed in the Official Plan, including Planning for Growth, Rural and Agricultural Policy, Housing Affordability, Environment and Climate Change, Hazard Lands, and Indigenous Community Consultation and Reconciliation.

    During Phase 1, stakeholders, Council, and the public were presented with an overview of the Official Plan Update and related projects and initiatives that support the Official Plan. We asked for feedback on the key issues and opportunities, policy themes, planning for growth, and ideas and suggestions throughout the engagement process. The goal of this phase was to answer questions and gather initial feedback and comments to guide the overall vision for the Official Plan update.
