An Official Plan is a statutory document which sets out the land use policy directions for long-term growth and development in a municipality. It is prepared with input from residents and others in the community and helps to ensure that future planning and development will meet the specific needs of your community. The County Official Plan sets out policies for the physical growth and development of the Township of Whitewater Region and affects all lands within our municipality.
Pursuant to Section 26 of the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, CHAPTER P.13, the County of Renfrew undertook the update of its Official Plan which was approved by the Ministry in March 22, 2019.
