What is an Official Plan?
The Official Plan is the overall policy for how land is used in Collingwood and will be the vision for our community over the next 20 years. The plan is the guide for the Town’s growth and directs where, when, and how growth should occur.

Why update the Official Plan?
The Planning Act requires the Town to update our Official Plan every five years to make sure that it is in line with Provincial and County plans, such as:

A Place to Grow: the Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe

Provincial Policy Statement

County of Simcoe Official Plan

In Ontario, the planning system is based on a ranking of plans. These plans change often and each time that a change is made, new content is added that gives new direction or changes the planning system. The Town has to make sure that our Official Plan is updated to match Provincial Plans and the County Official Plan.

The plan also needs to be updated to:

Integrate the content of other Town plans that have recently been approved or are soon to be approved with the Official Plan.

Update the Official Plan to provide Council with the tools they need to manage future growth.

How can I get involved?
There will be many chances for public input during the Official Plan update process and we want to hear your ideas! Please watch this page and Town social media for updates on how you can be involved.
