Notice of online survey for the Official Plan Review

Posted On Thursday July 18, 2019
The Town of Saugeen Shores has initiated a review of its Official Plan and has an online survey seeking input to this initiative and to understand the opinions of the public.
The purpose of the Official Plan Review is to address the requirements of the Planning Act, which requires municipalities to conduct an Official Plan Review every five years and to address Provincial plans, policies and matters of Provincial interest. The Official Plan Review is a Town-wide initiative potentially affecting all land within the Town of Saugeen Shores. GSP Group Inc. has been retained by the Town to assist Town Staff with the process.
The Official Plan is a statement of goals, objectives and policies to guide future growth, land use and development within the Town of Saugeen Shores for the next 20 years. The Town’s current Official Plan was approved in 2014 and has been subject to several amendments.
The online survey seeks to gather respondents' top priorities, which will be used to develop a list of policies to be reviewed. Complete the survey at
If you are submitting letters, faxes, e-mails, presentations or other communications to the Town concerning the Official Plan Review, personal information (such as name, address and comments) may be contained in reports to council and published on the Town’s website.

Additional opportunities for public comment will be provided at later dates. Visit to stay up to date on the OP Review.
