The municipality is reviewing its Official Plan. The Official Plan is the key planning document that guides the development of our community. There is an introductory discussion paper available on the municipality’s website that is looking to start a conversation with Clarington residents, businesses and land-owners on how you would like to see our communities evolve to 2051.
An Official Plan outlines the long-term vision and policies that shape the development and growth of a municipality. It affects the daily lives of residents, their neighbourhoods, and the over-all character of the community. Involving residents ensures that the plan reflects the diverse needs, interests, and aspirations of the people who live and work in the area. It promotes democratic decision-making by giving residents a voice in shaping their own communities.
