The County of Peterborough Official Plan (OP) sets the land use and planning framework for local Official Plans and decision-making. Its policies are broad and meant to guide local Townships in creating detailed policies in their own Official Plans. The County OP applies to all types of development in the County.

Local Township Policies

The Townships of Asphodel-Norwood, Douro-Dummer, North Kawartha and Selwyn have included their local policies in the County Official Plan. By including local policies in the County OP, it creates a more consistent approach to planning and development within the County.

Local Township policies are in Sections 6 and 7 of the County Official Plan. Below are the land use schedules for each of the four Townships.
