Planning Department 

The Planning Department is responsible for the planning and general design of the Township of Central Frontenac. Land use planning enables the Township to establish both long and short term goals and objectives for growth and development, while considering social, economic and environmental implications. Through various planning processes the interests and objectives of both individual property owners and the of the Township are realized.

Official Plan Review and Update

The Township of Central Frontenac is embarking on a review and update to the Township Official Plan. The Official Plan will set out goals, objectives, and policies established primarily to manage and direct physical change and the effects on the social, economic, and natural environment of the Township for the next 20 years. This update and review is a regular process required under the Planning Act.

The Official Plan will ensure that future planning and development meets the community’s needs. The update will involve extensive consultation with the public through open houses and public meetings. This webpage will be regularly updated to ensure that you can stay informed.

For more information on the Official Plan review, to submit comments or to add your email to the notification list, please contact: Megan Rueckwald, Manager of Community Planning at 613-548-9400 ext. 351 or mrueckwald@frontenaccounty.ca
