Purpose and Effect of the Official Plan
The new Official Plan replaces the current Official Plan (2002), and all previous Official Plan Amendments. The Plan also updates the current planning policies to be consistent with the Provincial Policy Statement (2005) and implements the Growth Plan for Northern Ontario.
The Plan establishes policies that direct new growth to the Stable Areas which will accommodate residential, commercial, industrial and institutional growth and designates sufficient land for new residential and employment uses to accommodate the City’s projected needs to the year 2031. Residential growth will be encouraged to include range of densities in a variety of housing formats. The Plan establishes guidelines for the preservation of cultural and built heritage resources to reflect the cultural identity and character of the City. The Plan establishes policies for shoreline development to ensure the protection of the Lakes and shoreline environments. It also establishes a continuous natural heritage system throughout the City to preserve ecological functions and features as well as providing open space.
No key map is provided as the Official Plan affects all lands within the City of Dryden.
The Official Plan as adopted will be sent to the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing for approval pursuant to subsection 17(22) of the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, c.P.13, as amended.
