Planning

Planning is the ongoing technical, political and social process by which a community defines and acts to attain its preferred quality of life. Planners aim to achieve the orderly disposition of land and resources and to protect the physical, economic and social health of communities.

The municipal planning process is governed by upper tier requirements and standards which are established in a hierarchy of legislation, regulations, common law, policies, and guidelines and standards. Examples of applicable legislation and policy include the Planning Act, Provincial Policy Statement and County of Grey Official Plan


Official Plan

Official Plans are municipalities' primary strategic documents for guiding land use and development.
