Following the passing of an Interim Control By-law (ICBL) on April 26, 2021, the Town moved quickly to address the challenge of future water capacity allocation by advancing a Land Use Planning Policy Study. The goal is to implement the recommendations of the Study in advance of the expiration of the one-year ICBL study period.  Planning for sustainable growth within a municipality requires an alignment between land use planning and infrastructure decisions to ensure that hard services are available to support construction. 

A link to Staff Report P2021-35 with a best practices review and the recommended tools for a Servicing Capacity Allocation Framework will be available for review at

Public engagement sessions were held Tuesday, November 23rd. If you were unable to attend a session you can still provide comments, ask questions, and find more information at, by email to or deliver to Town Hall, 97 Hurontario Street. 

Written comments will be accepted until December 3, 2021.
