Notice of Public Open House - Official Plan Review

May 23, 2024 

The Town of Greater Napanee invites all interested persons to attend a Public Open House in order to consider revisions and provide input on the Town’s Draft Official Plan, pursuant to the requirements of Section 17(16) of the Planning Act, RSO 1990, as amended. Council will hold the Open House at the Town’s Municipal Offices on:

Thursday, June 20, 2024

6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

(Presentation at 6:15 pm)

99A Advance Avenue, K7R 3Y5

At the Public Open House, the Draft Official Plan will be available for review. Staff from the Town and the consultant team will be available to answer questions and receive feedback. 


The purpose of the Official Plan is to provide a framework intended to reduce the element of uncertainty as to the manner and sequence of growth and land use changes so that coordination of public and private investment can occur. The existing Official Plan was approved by the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing on February 19th, 2002 and was most recently updated in 2014. 

The Planning Act requires that an Official Plan be updated to ensure that it: conforms with provincial plans or does not conflict with them.  Since the 2014 Official Plan update, a new Provincial Policy Statement (PPS 2020) has been enacted and a new Official Plan created for the County of Lennox & Addington, with which the municipal Official Plan must conform. There were also a number of long-standing mapping errors and outdated policy references that are proposed to be addressed. In light of the extensive number of changes, the proposed Official Plan will replace the existing Official Plan currently in effect.


The update to the Official Plan will affect all lands within the municipal boundary of the Town of Greater Napanee.
