Drummond/North Elmsley’s Official Plan is the key planning policy document that guides development in the Township and is a statement about where and how development should take place now and into the future. The Plan defines generalized land use designations including “Rural”, “Hamlet”, “Wetland”, “Agriculture” and others, as well as policies governing all uses of land. The Official Plan reflects the community’s values regarding development and is adopted by Council and approved by the Province (Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing). All planning applications must meet the policies of the Official Plan. On July 25th 2012 the Township’s new Official Plan came into effect once the Ministry’s approval was finalized.
