In April 2017, municipal staff began working with the Oakland Area Advisory Committee (AAC), to review & update the existing Oakland Secondary Planning Strategy & Land Use By-law.

A copy of the existing planning documents for Oakland can be found HERE.

A number of Advisory Committee meetings are expected to be held over 2017-2018. AAC Meetings are open to the public. Any resident or landowner interested in the Plan Review process can attend.

Preliminary agendas for AAC meetings are available to interested parties through an e-mail Public Notice, sent out approximately one week prior to a meeting date. You can subscribe to the Oakland e-Notice list serve here: LINK

This particular webpage will be updated over the course of the Oakland Plan Review, as information and materials from past meetings are posted. You can contact Douglas Reid at the municipal offices (902-530-3480). 

Updated to: April 10th 2018.
