Planning and Development


Planning services ensure that the Municipality of South Huron is planned and developed in a manner that meets the existing and future needs of our communities. Planning services are provided through the County of Huron in coordination with South Huron municipal staff.

Planning applications for minor variance, zoning by-law amendments, temporary use zoning, deemings and holding zones are processed and approved by the Municipality of South Huron. For information on South Huron's Zoning By-law, visit the Zoning By-law page. 

Planning applications for Official Plan amendments, consents and plans of subdivision are vetted through the Municipality of South Huron Council, however, receive final approval from Huron County Council.
