The Town of Huntsville is creating a new Community Planning Permit (CPP) By-law. This document will replace the existing Huntsville Zoning By-law, will apply to all lands within the Town and will implement the policies of the Town’s Official Plan.

What is the CPP By-law and why is it important?

The Community Planning Permit By-law is a tool available to municipalities in Ontario that combines the development process by addressing all zoning amendments, minor variance and site plan agreements under one application.

This means that the CPP By-law will provide Huntsville with the ability to regulate and manage development in a more streamlined and flexible manner, with applications being reviewed within a 45 day timeframe.

For the community, it means faster approval timelines, less applications, and less approvals that need to be considered by Council.

The By-law will help the Town address some of the ongoing issues related to development, such as erosion, natural heritage, tree removal and site alteration.

The CPP By-law will identify a number of Community Planning Permit Precincts, to which standards of the By-law will be applied. These Precinct boundaries will be based on the boundaries of the land use designations from the Town’s Official Plan. The proposed Precincts are shown in the map below.

As we define these Precincts and the standards of the By-law that will apply to them, it is important for us to understand these areas better. As a resident or visitor to Huntsville, let us know your thoughts!
