A roundtable forum is being held as part of the Official Plan Review. The session will be a facilitated workshop that will focus on:

  • Key trends impacting Haldimand County;
  • Your aspirations for the County; and
  • Two themes: Economy and Growth Management.

This is the first of two workshops in the Official Plan Update review. Facilitated Workshop # 2 will be held in the Fall of 2020 and will focus on the other policy themes, including Environment; Community Building; Leisure, Culture and Heritage; and Health and Social Services.

The Haldimand County Official Plan contains goals, objectives and policies that manage and direct physical change and its effects on the social, economic and natural environment of the County. It guides the installation of public infrastructure and the County’s zoning bylaws that development approvals must conform to.

To help us prepare for the Workshop, please contact Christina Botas – Haldimand County Planning Department at 905-318-5932 ext. 6209 or email: to pre-register for the event.
