The Planning Department is responsible for the review, development and implementation of land use and processes made under the Planning Act.

Planning applications

Development review is required where property restrictions affect the properties project goals. In these situations, we encourage property owners to arrange a pre-consultation meeting with the Township of Adjala-Tosorontio's Planning Department to find out about the application process the property owner may incur. Please see our Planning Forms Application page.


Our Zoning By-law regulates the use, location, size and height of structures, as well as other provisions. The Zoning By-law complements the Township's Official Plan to ensure future development is sustainable for the Township. Please check the zoning regulations for your property before applying for a building permit. Find the zoning of your property on our Zoning By-law page or by calling Planning at 705-434-5055 ext. 223.
