Notice of Decision

 

What is the County Official Plan?

Recolour Grey is the name of Grey County’s update of the County Official Plan.  The County Official Plan sets goals related to development, communities and our natural resources.  This plan divides the county into different land uses (agricultural, wetland, urban etc.) and sets policies for each designation.

The Official Plan is active for 20 years and is revised every few years to ensure it is effective and relevant. 

Recolour Grey relied on meaningful public input from stakeholders of all ages, genders and backgrounds.  Public participation helped us define what matters most to residents and what opportunities we have to grow over the next 20 years.

The Recolour Grey Process

Recolour Grey was a two and a half year journey, speaking with the public and incorporating feedback into drafts of the official plan.  Recolour Grey began in 2016 with an official launch followed by multiple public information sessions and engagement at popular community events. Staff created five discussion papers focusing on key themes from consultations:

Grey County hosted public workshops in all nine local municipalities in the summer of 2017 to share findings and discuss policy options. The first draft of the new plan was written and further revisions were made leading up to another public meeting in March 2018.
