Standard Process for Planning Act Notices to Resume

Published on: 2020/09/30 - in Releases

The City’s Planning Services Department is resuming its standard process for posting legislated notices under the Planning Act. Beginning with the Nov. 5 Planning Committee and Nov. 16 Committee of Adjustment meetings, staff will mail out notices and will require on-site signage relating to proposed development activity.

“In March 2020, staff replaced mailouts and site signage with printed ads in the Whig-Standard in order to reduce reliance on third-party services that may have been affected by the developing pandemic situation,” says Tim Park, Manager of Development Approvals for the City of Kingston. “Given the current situation and status of City services, we are confident that we can return to the standard process, while still meeting our commitments under the Planning Act.”

While the City facilities at 1211 John Counter Blvd. are now open to the public from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday, residents can continue to access planning services remotely. Planning Services staff are available to address inquiries about potential applications via phone at 613 546-4291 ext. 3180 or email at ( . Applicants are requested to email or call the Planner assigned to their files.

Planning Act applications can still be submitted online through DASH.
