Public Planning Meeting Registration

The County of Middlesex Official Plan Amendment


Pursuant to Sections 17 and 26 of the Planning Act.

As this will be an online meeting, there will be no physical in person attendance.

The County of Middlesex is reviewing its Official Plan to ensure that the land use planning policies are current, reflect updated Provincial policy, and reflect changing community needs for the next 25-years.

The Official Plan is a land use planning document that includes a vision, goals, and land use policy directions for the County. The Plan provides a policy framework for topics such as Resource Management, Growth Management, and the provision of Physical Services by dealing with issues of Provincial and County interest. The Official Plan recognizes the planning powers and authorities vested in local municipalities and does not set out detailed local policies. Within Middlesex County, each local municipality has a more detailed local official plan.

A Proposed Official Plan Amendment and all supporting information are available here. This includes proposed changes in the format of a ‘track change’ document. The Amendment would apply to the entire County and accordingly no key map is provided.

When: Tuesday May 24, 2022 at 2:00 p.m.
Where: This meeting is being held virtually through the Zoom webinar tool.

The purpose of the Public Meeting is to provide the public an opportunity to provide formal submission to Middlesex County Council on the proposed amendment. Any person may attend the public meeting and/or make written or verbal representation either in support of or in opposition to the proposed Official Plan Amendment, or submit ideas and feedback for consideration.
