Municipal Planning Commission

The Municipal Planning Commission has been dissolved.

At the March 22, 2022, Council Meeting, Council directed that the County’s Municipal Planning Commission (MPC) be dissolved.

Since February 2020, the MPC has considered the majority of subdivision applications, and many development permit applications. On May 25, 2022, the final MPC meeting was held. Going forward, as previously occurred prior to the creation of MPC, decisions will now be made by either Council, or by Administration.

Subdivision Applications

Subdivision applications will now be considered by Council subject to criteria based broadly on:

  • The level of concern from an applicant, affected landowners, and other stakeholders;
  • Compliance with statutory and non-statutory plans and standards; and,
  • Any previous Council motion passed at land use amendment.

If a subdivision application does not meet the criteria for referral to Council, it will be determined by Administration. The intent of these changes is to improve customer service and to ensure that Council has the appropriate oversight on development matters that have more significant public interest considerations.

Development Permit Applications

Development permit applications will now be determined by Administration, with the exception of a few instances where Council has previously directed that it shall determine applications for development on certain sites, for example in direct control districts.
