Regional Official Plan - Policy Review Consultation

The Region of Durham is presently undertaking a review of its Official Plan policies related to the severance of surplus farm dwellings (i.e. Policies 9A.2.9 and 9A.2.10).

As part of this initiative, a Discussion Paper has been prepared for the purposes of providing information and initial analysis. The Discussion Paper was presented to the Regions Planning and Economic Development Committee on March 22, 2016 through Report No. 2016-P-18. The Region is now seeking input from all interested stakeholders.

The Report and Discussion Paper are located here: Surplus Dwelling Policy Review

We acknowledge the complexity of this matter from a land use planning and agricultural industry perspective. Your insights will therefore be invaluable to this initiative.
