The Town of Orangeville's Planning division provides land use planning guidance and advice to our community, Council, landowners, and to developers. We administer our Official Plan, the Zoning Bylaw and the development approval process. You can view the current development applications and our latest news and public notices to explore open and past development applications in our community.

Community Improvement Plan (CIP)

We administer the Town of Orangeville’s Community Improvement Plan (CIP). The CIP was adopted in 2023 and offers eight financial incentive programs that encourage property owners to improve the use and appearance of their lands and buildings in select Community Improvement Areas. The incentives outlined within the CIP aim to help offset costs related to site improvement, redevelopment, reuse, and/or rehabilitation, as well as brownfield remediation. 

Land use planning

We research and study land use planning, which includes studies about provincial policies as well as issues that affect our community's development. Learn more about land use planning, community development and growth, and the process in Ontario with the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing Citizen's Guide to Land Use Planning.
