The Township of Hornepayne uses land use planning to set goals for our growth and development while managing our land and resources. It helps us balance the interests of individual property owners with our wider community objectives.
Our Official Plan guides planning and zoning decisions in the Township over the next 20 years. All new development applications must follow these guidelines to be approved. Our Official Plan aims to enable higher density, affordable development while protecting our local wetlands, floodplains and heritage sites.
Our Zoning By-law governs buildings and land use according to the Official Plan. There are different permitted land uses and regulations depending on which zone your property is in.
