Site Plan Approval Process

Site plan control is a form of development control under the Planning Act that deals with the review of the detailed design of a property to ensure that Township and other agency standards and requirements are met. The process allows Township staff to review and approve development details like building location, loading and parking facilities, landscaping, grading and servicing.

Development subject to site plan control cannot proceed until site plan approval is granted. Upon approval of the plans, the owner and the Township enter into a site plan agreement that contractually binds the owner to develop and maintain a site in accordance with the approved plans and the terms of the agreement.
