Official Plan Review

The Municipality of Strathroy-Caradoc is reviewing and updating its Official Plan. The Official Plan sets out policies and objectives to guide land use, development, and growth across the Municipality. These policies are necessary to support orderly growth and compatibility between different land uses and the environment. The Municipality is required to review its Official Plan to ensure that it conforms with the latest policies set out by the Province of Ontario and the County of Middlesex.

The Official Plan consists of policies that guide things like:

  • Where housing, businesses, shops, and roads should go;
  • What parts of the Municipality will be the focus for growth and what that growth will look like;
  • How to promote, enhance, and protect neighbourhoods and heritage assets;
  • Which services and amenities, such as parks, trails, community centres, are needed and where they should be located; and
  • How to plan for the impacts of climate change and meet environmental targets

    The first phase of the Municipality of Strathroy-Caradoc's Official Plan Review is to evaluate and designate three (3) areas within Strathroy’s Settlement boundary that are currently un-designated.

    The location of the three (3) areas are shown on the Location Map attached below, and are described as follows:

    1. Area 1 – Bounded by Carroll Street East to the north, Saxton Road to the west and the South Grove Meadows subdivision to the south.
    2. Area 2 – Bounded by Darcy Drive to the east, and across from Middlesex Drive.
    3. Area 3 – Bounded by Albert Street to the South and bordered to the north, and west by the Township of Adelaide Metcalfe.

    The intent of the proposed scoped Official Plan Amendment is to address three areas in the current Strathroy Settlement boundary that are undesignated in the Strathroy-Caradoc Official Plan and to reduce the shortage of lands appropriate for residential development within Strathroy by designating these three areas for residential uses under the Strathroy-Caradoc Official Plan.

    View the Draft Background Report and Official Plan Amendment, available under the 'Documents' tab on the right side of the window.

    For this application, there will be both a Virtual Open House on April 28th, 2021 and a Virtual Statutory Public Meeting on May 17, 2021. Both meetings will start at 6:00 p.m. If you would like to participate in either the Open House or Statutory Public Meeting, please email planning@strathroy-caradoc.ca or call 519-245-1070 ext. 210 not later than one week before the meeting date.

    Leave your name, address and phone number, as well as area you are interested in. Staff will return your call and provide participation options and details. The meeting will also be broadcast live at 6:00 p.m. the day of the meetings at www.strathroy-caradoc.ca/meetings

    Or, send comments to:
