Official Plan Review - Renewing Lakeshore

Lakeshore is undergoing a 5 year review of the Official Plan. 

The Official Plan contains Lakeshore Council's objectives and policies to guide the short-term and long-term physical development of all lands within the boundary of the municipality. The Plan seeks to balance the multiple goals of economic prosperity, community vitality, environmental responsibility, enriched cultural identity and infrastructure sustainability.

It provides direction for the allocation of land use, provision of municipal services and facilities, and preparation of regulatory by-laws to control the development and use of land. These types of policies are considered necessary to promote orderly urban growth and compatibility among land uses.

The Town needs your input!  Two open houses have been held and one more is scheduled for April. You are welcome to review the documents below and provide comment using the Official Plan comment form

Comments can be emailed to Lakeshore's Planner, Kim Darroch at
