What is an Official Plan?

An Official Plan is a legal document containing goals, objectives and policies to guide land use, development and growth in a municipality.


Why are we reviewing the Official Plan?

We review our Official Plan to ensure that it conforms with the latest provincial policies and the County of Middlesex Official Plan. The review will consider planning studies and reports completed by the municipality and county since the current Official Plan was approved.


Tell Us What You Think

We are interested to hear your comments and thoughts. You can provide input in several ways.

1) Reviewing Official Plan Materials 

As the Official Plan Review progresses, documents and materials will be made available on the municipality’s website for review.

2) Complete the “Looking Ahead” Survey

In July, a “looking ahead” survey will be mailed to a random selection of residents and posted to the municipal website for public response. This survey will gather your thoughts on several current municipal initiatives: the Strategic Plan, Official Plan Review, and 2021 budget.

3) Provide Written Comments

Written comments about the Official Plan Review may be submitted via post or email. Please allow time for your comments to be received in advance of the meeting. 

4) Participate at the Public Meeting

You may provide comments at the public meeting by phone or on-line via Zoom.

Only those that register will be permitted to participate during the meeting. 

To register, send your request via email no later than 4:30 p.m. on Monday, August 10, 2020. (Phone requests may be made to the Middlesex Centre Municipal Clerk only if email is not available.) Please include your first and last name, phone number, home address with postal code, and any prepared speaking notes.

This is the first meeting before Council regarding the Official Plan Review.  There will be additional opportunities for comment throughout the review process. Please see the Official Plan Review page for details.
