Applying for site plan approval

Before starting your site plan application form, you must attend a pre-consultation meeting. Please see our guidelines for site plan approval for submission requirements, fees, and timeline information below. 

Our Site Plan Control By-law and review process improves the function, design and appearance of proposed developments.

To ensure the interests of the Town are met and to adequately assess the technical aspects of your proposal, the Town requires submission of a number of information items with your application. The guidelines provide definitions and detailed descriptions of the plans, reports, and studies the Town may require in order to assess development proposals and the completeness of development applications.
