The Township of Bonfield initiated a review of its Official Plan and Zoning By-law pursuant to Sections 17, 26 and 34 of the Planning Act in late 2011.
Following consultation with the community and external agencies as required by the Act, Council adopted the Official Plan on August 28, 2012. The Official Plan received full approval from the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing on February 28, 2013 and came into full force and effect on March 21, 2013. The full text and maps of the Official Plan are available for download here.
The Zoning By-law received first and second reading on August 28, 2012. The third reading of the Zoning By-law is scheduled for May 28, 2013. Minor changes have been made to the Zoning By-law to reflect MMAH changes to the Official Plan. The draft Zoning By-law is available for download here:
