Site Plan Control

Properties within the Municipality of Kincardine may be subject to site plan control.

Before a building permit is issued a Site Plan Agreement between the Municipality and the developer must be executed. The agreement holds the developer accountable to develop and maintain a site as per the approved site plans and terms of the agreement.

If you need any assistance with this process, please contact our building department by e-mail or at 519-396-3468 ext. 2.

Site Plan Application Process

There are six steps to the site plan application process:

The applicant consults with municipal staff about the proposed project.

If a planning application is also required for the project, the applicant will be directed to start this with the Bruce County Planner.

Learn about the Site Plan Control Application Requirements and ensure that your submission includes:

  • Site Plan Application- contact the Building and Planning Department to fill out a Site Plan Application
  • Site Plan Checklist
  • Supporting documentation and drawings
  • Site Plan Fee and Deposit

The site plan application is circulated to relevant commenting agencies, including but not limited to: municipal staff, municipal engineer, Saugeen Valley Conservation Authority, Bruce County Planner, MTO, service providers.

Any comments are sent to the applicant, so concerns can be addressed, and the application resubmitted with amendments or alterations.

Once all comments from agencies have been addressed to the satisfaction of the Municipality, a site plan agreement is drafted and sent to applicant for review.

Once the site plan agreement has been signed by the property owner or signing authority the agreement is taken to council with a staff report for consideration. Upon Council's approval a by-law is passed, and the agreement is signed and in effect. The Site Plan Agreement is then registered on title.

Site Plan Agreement

A site plan agreement is individual to the property. A draft site plan agreement can be reviewed. However, there may be additional, site specific, requirements.
