The Municipality of Trent Hills is launching an Official Plan review. The goal is to incorporate the policies from previous amendments into the text of the Official Plan. It is an opportunity to update rural development policies; natural heritage features; review the boundaries of land designations on land use schedules; update policies related to cultural heritage resources and address additional requirements for planning applications.
This is also an opportunity to hear from the community regarding land use issues or with questions about the development process.
A draft Official Plan incorporating these changes has been created and is available for review: Draft Official Plan
The updated Official Plan policies will address:
• Adjustment of the boundaries of Prime Agricultural land;
• Identify a Shoreline Residential designation;
• Bring Prime Agricultural Policies into conformity with the Provincial Policy Statement;
• Create policies recognizing rural residential clusters;
• Update Natural Heritage Policies;
• Update Cultural Heritage Policies;
• Clarify urban watercourse setback requirements
• Expand the requirements for site plan control;
• Introduce Shoreline Protection Policies;
• Create a framework for Source Protection Policies;
• Update the schedules (maps) for Greenlands, Natural Heritage Features, Prime Agricultural Lands, and Land Use Structures; and
• Create a new Schedule for Shoreline Residential.
The revised Official Plan is currently being considered by various Provincial Ministries through the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing. New draft land use maps will be created.
If there are any questions or comments regarding the process or policies, please send them to :

NORTHUMBERLAND COUNTY - NOTICEOF STUDY RECOMMENCEMENT Completion of the Trent River Crossing and Arterial Road Network Municipal Class Environmental Assessment in the Municipality of Trent Hills
Northumberland County has retained IBI Group to recommence and complete the Trent River Crossing and Arterial Road Network Municipal Class Environmental Assessment in the Municipality of Trent Hills. In 2009, the County presented a Draft Environmental Assessment for an Additional Trent River Crossing that recommended construction of a new bridge across the Trent River at the Second Street/Alma Street corridor. It was put on hold in response to community concerns about impacts, and until additional engineering work could be conducted on alternatives to a new Second Street/Alma Street bridge.
This additional engineering work has now been completed, and concludes that replacing the existing Campbellford Bridge is also a feasible alternative to meet Campbellford’s existing and future traffic needs.
The Environmental Assessments being completed in accordance with the planning and design process for ‘Schedule C’ projects as outlined in the Municipal Engineers Association “Municipal Class Environmental Assessment,” (October 2000, as amended in 2011), which is approved under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act. The process will now evaluate the two finalist alternatives: 1) Existing Campbellford Bridge Replacement, and 2) New Second/Alma Bridge. The County plans to present study information at public meetings in the Spring and early Summer of 2013.
Planned public meetings will be advertised in the local newspaper and project website, and sent to all those on mailing lists from previous public meetings. If you are interested in this project but did not attend any previous public meetings, you are encouraged to send your name and contact information to the contacts below. Study information is also available at the following project website, including a Newsletter containing answers to 20 important questions and recently raised concerns:
A paper copy of the Newsletter is also available at the Northumberland County office at 555 Courthouse Road, Cobourg, ON K9A 5J6, and the Municipality of Trent Hills office at 66 Front Street S in Campbellford.
Upon completion of the study, an Environmental Study Report (ESR) will be prepared and made available for public review and comment. Any person or group wishing to comment on, or to be involved in the Environmental Assessment are asked to indicate their interest, preferably in writing to:
