Planning Advisory Committee

What is the Planning Advisory Committee?

The Planning Advisory Committee (“PAC”) is a policy driven committee that recognizes and balances the complex interfaces between the environmental, built form, social and economic factors in land use planning, making recommendations to Council on planning related matters

Types of Applications Assessed by the Committee

  • Land Division (Severances)
  • Zoning By-law Amendments/Official Plan Amendments
  • Plans of Subdivision
  • Site Plan Development
  • Deeming By-laws
  • The Township’s Comprehensive Official Plan review process
  • Other planning and development related reports

Processes respecting each type of application are outlined in the Planning Act and related regulations. Related fees are outlined by Township by-law.

The PAC carries out review of the above filed applications through meetings with applicants, by consideration of filed materials and provided staff information/reports and by conducting site visits. Recommendations are based on compliance or non-compliance with the Official Plan and Zoning By-laws, the Provincial Policy Statements (PPS).
