About Site Plan Control

Pursuant to Section 41 of the Planning Act, the Town of Grimsby passed By-law 86-8 to designate the whole of the Town of Grimsby as an area of site plan control. All classes of development are subject to site plan control under By-law 86-8, as amended, with the exception of agricultural buildings and structures, save and except greenhouses and help houses.

Site Plan Applications

A formal pre-consulation meeting may be required prior to submitting a site plan application.
