Official Plan Review

Please join us!

This page is your hub for all updates, proposed policy and opportunities to provide feedback about the Wellington County Official Plan Review.



The County of Wellington Official Plan is the core planning document that guides how County and Member Municipal Councils make decisions about growth and development. We update the Plan regularly to respond to changing needs and policy directions.

The review will focus on meeting requirements under the following Provincial legislation and policy documents:

  • Ontario Planning Act
  • Provincial Policy Statement (2014)
  • Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe (2019)
  • Greenbelt Plan (2017)

Later in the review process, we will draft new or updated policies and maps. Once approved, we will incorporate final versions into the Official Plan.

Stay tuned!

We will regularly update this page throughout the Official Plan Review process. If you would like to receive updates, please subscribe to this page.
