We’re building our best Brock and want to hear from you!
In April 2021, the Township of Brock contracted WSP to undertake a full review of our Official Plan to guide how Brock grows into the future. The Official Plan provides direction for the growth and development of the community and where land uses (e.g. residential, commercial, industrial, parks) should be located. The Official Plan Review is an opportunity to update the Official Plan to reflect changes within the community and in Provincial and Regional planning policies.
This study is being undertaken in seven modules to help focus the review and allow us to best engage our residents in ways that are meaningful and manageable. To do this, we will be hosting several public meetings and information sessions, along with constant virtual engagement.
Head over to Let’s Talk Brock to participate and provide your input!
A Public Information Centre will be held virtually for each Module of the study. That is 7 specific opportunities for you to participate in addition to the Statutory Public Meetings required by the Planning Act.
Statutory Public Meeting – September 20, 2021 at 5:00 p.m.
A requirement of the Planning Act is for the Township to host a formal introductory Public Meeting for the public and Council. On September 20, 2021 at 5pm, we hope you will be able to attend this virtual public meeting where the project team will explain the full project, what an Official Plan is and can do for the Township and how we will engage our residents at every step of the process. Please register at https://letstalkbrock.ca/building-our-best-brock by subscribing to the project to be sent a link to the meeting. Advertisements are also in the local newspaper and the livestream link will be available on http://www.townshipofbrock.ca.
Module 1: Vision and Strategic Directions – August 31, 2021 at 7:00 p.m.
This module involves seeking public input on how our residents would like to grow in the future and what strategic policy support can be put in place to support that growth. This module is where we are looking to our residents to help us really define what our future looks like. Below is an Ideation Board where you can post your ideas, suggestions and questions for your vision for the future growth and development of Brock. You can also vote for other ideas that you like to show your support.
On August 31, 2021 we will be hosting a Public Information Centre to have an interactive chat with the community about your ideas, vision and strategies for getting there. When you subscribe to the project at Let’s Talk Brock, a link to the meeting will be provided directly to you by email a few days in advance.
We look forward to hearing your input and collaboratively building our best Brock!
