Community Planning

The Community Planning Office plays a central role in the planning and management of new development in the County. Each development proposal is evaluated according to its compatibility with adjacent land uses as well as Oxford County’s social, economic, heritage and natural environments.

Some of the things we do: 
  • Forecast population and land needs
  • Develop land use and resource policies
  • Conduct research
  • Prepare by-laws
  • Evaluate development proposals
  • Assist in groundwater protection
