2019 Official Plan Review

Loyalist Official Plan Review logo

Ontario's Planning Act requires municipalities to conduct an Official Plan review every five years and revise/update the Plan accordingly to ensure that the Official Plan is consistent with the latest provincial policies and Provincial Plans.  The review process also provides the opportunity to adapt the Official Plan to changing planning realities (such as climate change) in the Township and to ensure conformity with the County of Lennox and Addington Official Plan. This review began in 2016.

The Township held three Open Houses in June, 2019, to gather community input. Substantive revisions have been made to address the comments received from the public and agencies.

The Council of Loyalist Township has scheduled a Public Meeting to consider a proposed comprehensive amendment update to Loyalist Township’s Official Plan, in accordance with Section 17(15) of the Planning Act, on Monday, March 23, 2020 at 6:00 pm at the Loyalist Township Administrative Office located at 263 Main Street, Odessa.
