Official Plan

Wellington County is a community of almost 90,000 (2011 Census) people living in an area of over 1,000 square miles. The rich farmland, large natural areas and small urban places of Wellington offer attractive choices to many people and businesses. The Official Plan gives direction over the next 20 years to the physical development of the County, its local municipalities and to the long term protection of County resources. The County Official Plan lays out how land in the County should be used. The Official Plan deals mainly with issues such as:

  • Where new housing, industry, offices and shops will be located
  • What services like roads, water, sewers and parks will be needed
  • When, and in what order, parts of your community will grow
  • How and when important resources will be protected

Wellington County is a good place to live. The Official Plan is intended to keep it that way.
