When do Building and Planning become an issue?
Building and planning issues arise when local residents feel that they are being inconvenienced by, or not fully informed about proposed changes.
“Well-designed, well-planned communities attract jobs and investment. Ontario’s land use planning system gives municipalities the major role in planning decisions. The ministry identifies and protects provincial interests, and promotes sound infrastructure planning, environmental protection, economic development and safe communities.”
