Development and Land Use

The Planning Department administers the Town’s Official Plan, Zoning By-law and the Development Approval Process. The development of lands within the Town of Orangeville may be subject to the payment of Development Charges and a number of fees and/or permits may be required.  Requirements will vary depending on the intended purpose of the property and where the building is located. To access the resources, information and municipal planning processes that you need to successfully develop in Orangeville please visit the Town of Orangeville Planning webpage.

The Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing has developed  A Land Use Planning Guide for Businesses. The guide provides general information about the land use planning process in Ontario and can help a business determine if it needs professional assistance with approvals or can do the work independently.
