Public Open House and Statutory Public Meeting: Township of Severn draft new Official Plan

09:00 AM | Open House and Public Meeting to held virtually

Public Open House and Statutory Public Meeting

Draft new Official Plan

Township of Severn will hold an Open House and Public Meeting, pursuant to Sections 26(3) and 17(16) of the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, as amended, to discuss the draft new Official Plan. In keeping with the Planning Act, Severn must update our Official Plan every five years.

An Official Plan is a long-term plan that provides a policy framework for:

  • making land use planning decisions
  • managing resources
  • protecting the environment
  • setting a structure for guiding growth

The purpose of the draft new Official Plan is to ensure compliance with current provincial and County of Simcoe plans, policies, and legislation, as well as to reflect the goals and values of the Severn community. The draft new Official Plan will establish a planning and growth management framework for Severn until 2051. The draft new Official Plan has incorporated new and updated policies and mapping on the various focus areas identified through the Official Plan Review process, including:

  • agriculture and rural areas
  • climate change
  • cultural heritage
  • growth management
  • housing
  • natural hazards
  • natural heritage system
  • settlement area hierarchy
  • transportation
  • waste management

The draft new Official Plan will apply to all lands within the municipal boundary of the Township of Severn. For that reason, no key map is included in this notice.

Severn will be hosting a virtual Open House to provide members of the public the opportunity to learn about the draft new Official Plan, ask staff questions, and provide comments.
