The Resort Policy Review officially resumes January 2021 and will aim to review and revise the land use policy approach to resort development and redevelopment across Muskoka to:

  • achieve the objectives of the Muskoka Official Plan (MOP);
  • meet the needs of the industry; and
  • address priorities for the Muskoka community.

Lead by Meridian Planning Consultants Ltd., this project picks up resuming work from 2017 that was undertaken as part of the comprehensive review of the MOP.

Using the 2017 draft policies as a starting point, multi-stakeholder consultation will kick off the discussion, moving toward policy directions, formal consultation, and ultimately an Official Plan Amendment (OPA) to update the resort policies in the MOP.

This project page has been created to enhance communication on the resort review policy and is the online engagement platform for our community and stakeholders to be kept informed about this project.
