Final Draft Of Official Plan Heading to Council December 11, 2023

The Town of Collingwood is excited to share the final draft of the new Official Plan for consideration of adoption by Council at a Special Meeting on December 11, 2023.

We have enjoyed a tremendous level of community engagement throughout the almost four-year-long project journey and the feedback we’ve received has helped refine the policies that will guide sustainable growth and development in our Town for years to come. We thank everyone who participated in meetings, wrote letters, and attended open houses.

Staff Report P2023-32 provides an overview of the final draft Official Plan, an Indigenous engagement record, all comments received on Draft 2, and a comment-response matrix, as well as a tracked-change version from the Draft 2 Official Plan.

We invite you to watch the upcoming Special Meeting of Council, starting at 2:00 pm on Monday. A live stream link and the agenda are available on the CivicWeb Portal.

If the new Official Plan is adopted by Council, it will be forwarded to the County of Simcoe for approval. Conversations on the Plan can continue through the next steps of the approval process and interested individuals may contact the County staff directly or request a notice of decision through the County Clerk by emailing clerks@simcoe.ca
