Official Plan

The Official Plan is a municipality's blueprint for the future. It contains policies that guide municipal planning decisions and information on future expansion of the Town's network of roads, water mains, and sewers. The schedules (maps) show where residential, commercial, industrial, institutional, and recreational development can go and what areas must be protected from development.

On April 2, 2012, the Town of Pelham adopted a new Official Plan (in accordance with Section 17(22) of the Planning Act, R.S.O., p13) by By-Law 3259 (2012).

On July 18, 2014, the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) issued a written decision, Case No. PL121306, regarding the new Official Plan.

The decision approves the Official Plan, dated March 11, 2014, except for matters identified in Attachment 1 to the decision.

The deferred matters, that are pending future approval by the OMB, have been identified in the Official Plan with either grey or yellow highlighted text.
