Planning and Regulations staff are working in a combination of in-office and remote situations and continue to provide service to the public, our municipalities and other stakeholders
The best way to contact staff at this time is through our Planning and Permits inquiry form.
Municipalities should continue to use previously assigned emails for their respective municipality to submit planning applications and follow up correspondence
If you have questions about whether or not your property is regulated by GSCA or are in the process of submitting a permit application, please utilize the online resources to assist you in the meantime.
We appreciate your patience during this time.
The following mapping resources are available to assist you in determining if a property is regulated by GSCA under Ontario Regulation 151/06. You can also review other mapping relevant to a property, such as Zoning By-law mapping and Official Plan mapping, through Grey County and Bruce County GIS portals. GSCA regulation mapping (ON Reg 151/06), Grey County GIS, Bruce County GIS
Please contact the local Municipality the property is located within to determine any Zoning and/or building requirements. Depending on the property and project location other approvals may also be required such as: Niagara Escarpment Commission, Federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans, Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry
Permit applications, regulatory compliance letters, and planning act application reviews can be submitted electronically or by regular mail.
For permit applications, please contact our staff to confirm the fee and requirements for a complete application prior to submitting payment.
For landowner, developer and/or real estate inquires, fees can be accepted, however, the required site visit may be delayed pending future Provincial and Health Authorities’ directives. Again, it is best to discuss with one of our staff prior to submitting a fee. Fees can be paid by mailing a cheque, e-transfer or paying online through the Amilia payment system.
