The Planning Act of Ontario grants municipalities the authority to review and approve site plans for certain types of development in accordance with established municipal requirements. Site Plan Control Review, an integral component of the municipal planning and development review process, focuses on the technical issues of site design rather than land use. In Deep River, commercial, industrial institutional and medium and high-density housing projects are subject to site plan control. Planning staff administer the site plan control by-law and are available for pre-consultation with applicants. Applications for site plan approval should be submitted to the planning staff.
