Official plan

An official plan sets out the Municipality's general policies for future land use, and states the land use planning goals that guide development.

Zoning by-laws

Zoning by-laws establish and regulate land use by implementing the general policies from the Official Plan.

Minor variance

If a development proposal does not conform exactly to a Zoning By-law, but meets the general intent and purpose and complies with the Official Plan, an application may be made for a minor variance.

Site plan

Site plan control by-laws require certain types of buildings or developments to obtain “site plan approval” prior to construction.

Consent (Severance)

All division of land in Ontario is subject to subdivision control, either through a plan of subdivision or consent approval to ensure that the new lots are consistent with the planning policies set out in the Official Plan and Zoning By-laws.

Development charges

The Municipality of Lambton Shores has established development charges to ensure there are necessary funds to provide infrastructure and services needed for the growing population.
