The Planning Department is responsible for dealing with all applications under the Planning Act including Consents, Minor Variances and Zoning By-law Amendments.

The Department is also responsible for ensuring compliance with the Township’s Official Plan and Zoning By-law.

Municipal Shore Road Allowance

Applications to purchase municipal shore road allowance are also submitted to the Planning Department.
Some waterfront properties within the Township of Addington Highlands have a 20 metre (66 foot) wide strip of land that separates them from the water. Shore road allowances are owned by the municipality.

Provincial legislation allows municipalities to sell such road allowances to the land owner directly adjoining the shore road allowance, excepting any portions of the allowance which are covered by water.

There is a formal application process to purchase the shoreline road allowance abutting your property and land owners who wish to do so should first speak with the Deputy Clerk / Planning Secretary.
