Welcome to the Township of South Frontenac's engagement hub for the new Official Plan project!

The Township of South Frontenac is creating a new Official Plan, a key guiding document that directs growth and development in the Township. Recent Provincial policy changes as well as the need to plan for the changing needs of residents are key drivers for undertaking the process, which builds on work undertaken over the past few years to plan for growth and changing community needs in South Frontenac. The project is anticipated to be completed in the fall of 2022.

Community and stakeholder input is a key aspect of the planning process, and your input will be sought at key milestones throughout the process to inform the creation of the Plan. Keep posted on the Township’s social media, website or here, on Engage South Frontenac for updates!
