As the province plans for recovery, the town is beginning to carefully and responsibly bring back services and reopen some public spaces, programs and services. Provincial emergency orders and the town’s physical distancing by-law remain in effect. We must all continue to follow guidelines from Public Health officials.
To assess the technical aspects of a development proposal, the town requires a number of supporting studies and materials to be submitted as part of a complete planning application. Requirements for an Official Plan amendment, Zoning By-law amendment, draft plan of subdivision or draft plan of condominium are described in the Livable Oakville Plan as well as found in the Planning Act.
Guidelines for each submission requirement are grouped into the categories below. The guidelines set out the study purpose, rationale, who is to prepare it and when. The level of detail and number of studies and plans required will vary depending on the scale and complexity of the proposal. A list of specific submission requirements will be prepared at the pre-consultation meeting and detailed in the application package (pdf).
