Planning and Development

Land Use Planning

Land use planning is a means of evaluating and directing development within the Township of Stone Mills in a way that is logical, efficient and attractive. For more information, please see our Official Plan and Zoning pages.

Good planning will avoid land use conflicts, encourage development that meets the needs of the community and provides a healthy and enjoyable environment for residents and visitors alike.

The Development Services Department reviews development applications for severances; minor variances; rezonings; amendments to the Official Plan; plans of subdivision and site plan control (used for complex developments such as industrial, commercial or institutional buildings).

Policy Planning

We are also responsible for long-range planning and policy development. The primary roles in policy planning include:

  • Guidance of the preparation and maintenance of an Official Plan that establishes the Township's goals, objectives and land use policies for guiding long-term physical growth and development of Stone Mills Township
  • Preparation of Community Improvement Plans for promoting the renewal and revitalization of older areas and the rehabilitation of private properties
  • Advise Council of the initiatives, plans, and policies of other levels of government as they may affect the Township of Stone Mills
