About Planning Services


The Planning Services  department guides, regulates and makes recommendations  regarding  community  growth and  development  in a manner that protects the environment, enhances quality of life, promotes a complete community and involves the public in the decisions that affect them.

We provide services regarding land use planning including the Official Plan and Zoning By-law documents for the Town of Collingwood, exercising control over the subdivision of land, and indirectly by providing municipal services and pursuing municipal policies which support and reinforce the land use planning objectives of the Municipality and County of Simcoe.
