The CPP By-law was Passed

The Town of Huntsville's Community Planning Permit By-law (By-law 2022-97) is now available.


Please review the Notice of Passage available on this page for further details.

This By-law is not yet in force and effect. As outlined in Section 1.5.1 of the By-law, it will commence on either:

  1. the day after the last day for filling a notice of appeal, if there are no appeals to the Ontario Land Tribunal (OLT); or
  2. the day after the day on which all of the appeals are disposed of by the OLT (or such later dates as the OLT may order).

The last date for filing a notice of appeal is August 18, 2022.

When in force and effect the CPP By-law 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.
