Official Plan Amendment
If you have a proposal that does not fit within the permitted uses of the land designation for your parcel of land, you may need to apply for an Official Plan Amendment (OPA) and/or Zoning By-Law Amendment (ZBA).
Pre-consultation with both the Township and Peterborough County is mandatory before making an application for an OPA.
Contact the Building and Planning Department to arrange an appointment to discuss your proposal.
A period of public notice is required when a landowner applies for an Official Plan Amendment (OPA).
