Algonquin Highlands 5 Year Official Plan Review

The Official Plan is the municipality’s key planning document intended to guide and control future land use development in the municipality. The Township’s Official Plan divides the municipality into various land use designations, such as Settlement Areas, Waterfront, Rural, Wilderness and others, with corresponding policies pertaining to development within each of these designations. The Official Plan also contains general policies relating to environmental management, resource protection, transportation, services and utilities. 

The Township’s Official Plan was approved in 2005 and the Planning Act requires that an Official Plan Review be undertaken at least every five years to ensure that it does not conflict with provincial plans, is consistent with provincial policy statements, conforms to the County of Haliburton Official Plan and continues to reflect matters of interest to the community. The Township of Algonquin Highlands initiated the 5 Year Official Plan Review in the spring and an initial Public Open House was held on May 29, 2010, with the intent of introducing the process to the community and obtaining input in an informal manner. 

Purpose of Special Meeting of Council 

The Special Meeting of Council is required by the Planning Act and the purpose is to discuss revisions that may be required to the Township of Algonquin Highlands Official Plan and to obtain comment from the Public on these matters. This Meeting will be the second opportunity for the Public to provide input into the 5 Year Official Plan Review process.  Any comments, information or questions should be directed to either of the Project Team members listed below:
