The Township of Clearview Official Plan is a 20-year vision document for how the Township will grow and develop. The Official Plan contains all of the Township’s growth and development goals and objectives. It also sets out land use designations for lands within the municipality, such as residential, commercial, and industrial designations. These categories establish permitted uses and other criteria for development proposed within each land use. The vision set out in the Official Plan is implemented through the Zoning By-law.
All planning staff opinions and decisions made by Township Council must conform with the Official Plan.
For more information on Official Plans as land use planning tools, please visit the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing Citizens’ Guides to Official Plans.
Clearview is currently Reviewing the Official Plan, to learn more or view the Draft Plan please visit our Official Plan Review webpage
