The Official Community Plan (OCP) is a comprehensive, long-term plan for the physical development of the community. It represents the Town's determination of the amount, type, and timing of development needed to achieve the Town's social, economic, and environmental goals. The current OCP was completed in 2014.
The OCP is a policy document that is intended to guide development in the Town for a 20-year period. The Zoning Bylaw 04-14 provides the principal method of implementing the objectives of the OCP. The plan is designed to be user-friendly and compliant with the requirements of The Planning and Development Act, 2007and The Statements of Provincial Interest Regulations .
