An Official Plan is a statutory document which sets out the land use policy directions for long-term growth and development in a municipality. It is not to be confused with the Zoning By-law which further details the broad range of land uses set out in the Official Plan. The current Official Plan for the Municipality of West Nipissing was approved by the Province on December 8, 2011.
The Municipality of West Nipissing Official Plan contains policies governing various land use designations, such as Residential, Commercial, Industrial, Agricultural and Open Space and Natural Heritage. These designations are broadly established on a land use map. Other policies relating to Mineral Aggregate Resources, Transportation and Community Improvement are incorporated into the Plan.
