Alert message

The Official Plan and Zoning By-law guide development within the community. The Town is the approval authority for applications for building permit; demolition permit; site plan; minor variance to the Zoning By-law; Zoning By-law Amendment and excavation permits. The Town also provides comments to the United Counties of Prescott and Russell (UCPR) on applications for lot severance and plans of subdivision as the County is the approval authority. Applications to amend the Official Plan are filed with the Town. If approved, an amendment to the Official Plan also requires approval by the UCPR.

Planning applications are filed with the Planner. Applications for building and demolition permits are filed with the Chief Building Official and applications for connections to municipal water, sanitary sewer and entranceway for access onto Town roads permits are filed with the Public Roads Superintendent. Applications for plans of subdivision and for consent must meet the requirements of Section 51(24) of the Planning Act. Plans of condominium must meet the requirements of the Condominium Act.

Applications for minor variance must meet all four of the following tests:

  • Is the application minor in nature?
  • Is the application desirable for the development of the site?
  • Does the application conform to the general intent of the Zoning By-law?
  • Does the application conform to the general intent of the Official Plan?
