About the Official Plan Review Project

The Town of Grimsby is reviewing its Official Plan (OP). This plan will guide the growth and development for the Town of Grimsby from now to 2051, and is a key building block for how our community will be shaped over time.

Where We Are in the Process

Grimsby's Official Plan Review project is in the Policy Directions phase.

Figure 1: Revised Official Plan Timeline. Please note that these dates will be updated as the Official Plan process unfolds.

This phase will focus on getting your input on topics that will be included the Official Plan, such as housing, workplaces, neighbourhoods, transportation, the environment, and more.

Policy Direction reports about each of these topics are being rolled out. You can find these reports under the Documents widget on the right side of this webpage as they are released.

Stay tuned to letstalkgrimsby.ca/officialplan to read the other reports and learn about more opportunities to have your say!

Details of the Official Plan Review Project

The OP sets out the Town’s vision for the future, directing responsible growth and development while building on the policy directions found in the Regional Official Plan, provincial plans, and Provincial Policy Statement. It is a legally binding (statutory) document that guides Council decisions related to land use, development, infrastructure, and services, and informs all other land use plans and regulations the Town may prepare.

Municipalities periodically review their OPs to ensure they remain in alignment with internal priorities and external considerations. The Town of Grimsby is preparing a new OP to replace our existing plan, which was approved in 2012. We are also developing a new Transportation Master Plan (TMP).

Grimsby is reviewing it’s Official Plan to:

  • Make sure that the Official Plan aligns with Council and Community priorities while conforming with provincial and regional plans and policies
  • Make the Official Plan easier to read and use for everyone
  • Plan for the way that Grimsby will grow and evolve over time

The TMP will be developed concurrently with the OP and will identify considerations and future directions related to transportation management and planning that the OP must incorporate.

Throughout this process, the people of Grimsby will have multiple opportunities to inform the OP’s content.

Be sure to check back for updates and other opportunities to have your voice heard!
