Official Plan Amendment 11

Grey County has initiated an amendment to our County Official Plan, Recolour Grey, to update our residential and employment growth forecasts, and other housekeeping matters. Mapping and text changes are proposed to the Plan through Official Plan Amendment (OPA) # 11.  Based on the feedback received since January 2022, County staff have proposed some additional changes to the text and mapping of OPA#11. 

Project Details

You can learn more about the proposed changes in OPA#11 by downloading the following documents. We have also included links to the recently updated Growth Management Strategy, which is the basis for our growth updates.
