Official Plan Review

Perth County is developing a New Official Plan!

The Official Plan is a strategic planning document that guides the long-term vision for the growth and development of the communities within Perth County including the Municipalities of North Perth, and West Perth, and the Townships of Perth East and Perth South.

The Official Plan determines how we will manage issues such as: agriculture; growth; housing; employment; and natural heritage conservation both now and into the future. This document will incorporate updated provincial policy to guide Perth County in making intelligent and informed planning decisions.

This project is being completed in a coordinated fashion with the County and local municipalities’ Strategic Plans and Asset Management Plans, in order to build a comprehensive strategy from which Perth County can cultivate new opportunities.

Please note that the County's existing Official Plan and the local Official Plans for three of the serviced urban areas (Listowel, Milverton, and Mitchell) can be viewed in the Document Library section of this website.


Update: Stage 1 Public Open Houses - Complete

Public Open Houses were held in each Member Municipality throughout April and May 2019. We thank all those who attended and provided valuable feedback on the Project.

Your input on the Vision Statement and Key Issues will set the tone for guiding land use policy development. We will be sure to keep you updated on the progress of the Project, and how to become more involved in the future.
