An Official Plan is a policy document that guides development and growth in a municipality over a 25 year timeframe. The City’s Official Plan is required to be consistent with the 2020 Provincial Planning Statement (PPS) and is subject to approval by the City Council and the Province of Ontario.

A copy of the Draft Official Plan will be available for review on the City’s website at: quintewest.ca/officialplanreview, or a copy can be viewed through the City’s Planning and Development department.

Comments are encouraged and welcome. Written submissions may be mailed to:
Scott Pordham

City of Quinte West,
Planning & Development Services,

If you wish to be notified of the decision of council for the City of Quinte West on the proposed Official Plan, you must make a written request to the City of Quinte West, Planning & Development Services, 7 Creswell Dr., Trenton, ON K8V 5R6.
