OFFICIAL PLAN REVIEW
The Township of O’Connor invites you to become engaged in planning for the Township’s future. On June 25, 2016 the Township hosted an Public Open House to present, review and receive input on changes to the Township’s Draft Official Plan and Zoning By-law. The Official Plan provides the overall policy direction for development in the municipality, and the Zoning By-law implements the policies through regulations. These documents apply to the entire municipality.
The Open House was the first public consultation event of the review process, however there will be additional opportunities for input at later stages of the process.
If you wish to be notified of the adoption of the proposed official plan, or of the refusal of a request to amend the official plan, you must make a written request to the Township of O’Connor.
If a person or public body does not make oral submissions at a public meeting or make submissions to the Township of O’Connor before the proposed Official Plan is adopted, the person or public body is not entitled to appeal the decision of the Township of O’Connor to the Ontario Municipal Board. If a person or public body does not make oral submissions at a public meeting or make written submissions to the Township of O’Connor before the proposed official plan is adopted, the person or public body may not be added as a party to the hearing of an appeal before the Ontario Municipal Board unless, in the opinion of the Board, there are reasonable grounds to add the person or public body as a party.
