New Development Inquiry Form Now Available

Posted On Monday June 06, 2022

Planning Services for the Municipality of Trent Hills is modernizing how it accepts and processes general development inquiries.  Beginning June 6, 2022, inquiries for property-specific information will be accepted through the submission of a Development Inquiry Form, available for on-line submission through the Municipal Website, or through hard-copy submission at the front desk of the Municipal Office.

You can find the on-line Development Inquiry Form on the Municipal Website here: www.trenthills.ca/DevelopmentInquiry

Inquiries will be assessed in the order which they are received. While staff will make all efforts to meet and exceed estimated timelines, in order to conduct the necessary research to provide accurate information, a response may not be available for up to 7 business days.

Moving forward, staff will begin to shift all phone call, e-mail, or walk-in inquiries to the Development Inquiry Form to establish a central submission depository. We ask for your patience as we implement this new process, designed to better serve the residents of the Municipality of Trent Hills.

This Development Inquiry Form is a direct result of the recently completed Development Services Review Delivery brought forward to Council on February 22, 2022.  This study provided recommendations on modernizing planning and development processes in response to the evolution of services and increased development pressure.  The Development Inquiry Form will standardize inquiry submissions received by the Municipality to ensure prompt responses and appropriate detail for all property-specific information.

The Municipality is committed to service delivery enhancements and recognize the importance ofseeking out new approaches to the planning and development review process.
