Land Use Planning and Development

Land use planning affects almost every aspect of life in our City. It helps to determine the locations of homes, shopping facilities, industrial development, parks, schools and other essential services. 

Good planning encourages public participation and leads to orderly growth and the efficient provision of services and resources.

Planning Services assists the public with proposals and applications for the development of land while ensuring that the Quinte West Official Plan and Zoning By-law are being maintained. The department is responsible for the following services:
