Official Plan Review

The Municipality of McDougall is reviewing its Official Plan! 

The Official Plan (pdf 404kb) and schedules (pdf 9.2mb) for the Municipality of McDougall is currently under review. An Official Plan is a policy document that establishes the long-term vision and goals for the Municipality's future growth and development. The Planning Act, the legislated authority that regulates land use planning in Ontario, requires that municipalities update their Official Plans through a formal review every five (5) years. The current Municipal Official Plan was last amended in 2015, and the Municipality is commencing an Official Plan review as required by the Planning Act.
