The Official Plan contains policies which guide development in the Town of Parry Sound. It is also a guiding document for Council when making land use decisions. Land use decisions (such as zoning by-law amendments, and minor variances) must conform to the Official Plan.
The current Official plan includes the following sections:
- Official Plan - Text
- Schedule A - Land Use (Office Consolidation)
- Schedule A - Land Use (as modified by MMAH)
- Schedule B - Transportation
- Schedule C - Environmental
Official Plan Amendments
An Official Plan Amendment is required when a land use proposal does not conform to the Official Plan policies. An Amendment changes the policies to cater to a specific development proposal. The Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing considers Official Plan Amendments for the Town of Parry Sound.
