Site Plan Approval

BACKGROUND

The Town of Georgina's ("The Town") By-law-0037 (PL-3) designates all lands within the Town as site plan control area. It also establishes procedures for how applications are processed, and exempts or delegates certain classes of site plan development from standard approval.
 
Site Plan approval is required for the construction, development, and re-development of all lands within the Town. The objective of Site Plan review is to improve the function, design and appearance of proposed developments. This is achieved by:
  • Implementing consistent municipal design and technical standards
  • Encouraging a high standard of structural and landscape design
  • Ensuring safe and efficient vehicular and pedestrian access, connections and circulation
  • Mitigating impacts on adjacent properties
  • Controlling the provision and placement of required services and facilities
