Building & Planning

The Council for the Municipality of Hastings Highlands, property owners, developers, planners and the public play an important role in shaping a community.

The Municipality makes local planning decisions that will determine the future of communities and approves building permits to protect the interests of both individuals and the community as a whole.

The Planning Department provides advice, reviews applications, and makes recommendations to Council for planning applications and matters in accordance with Ontario’s Planning Act.

The Building Department reviews and approves building permit applications to ensure buildings comply with the Ontario Building Code, the Comprehensive Zoning Bylaw, and other applicable legislation.
