Practical solutions for ongoing challenges 

Practical solutions for ongoing challenges

At NPG Planning Solutions, we compliment practical municipal planning solutions with a diverse set of domain expertise to ensure that the input of multiple stakeholders within the community are met while continuing to adapt to evolving legislation and regulation. Our team has direct experience writing Official Plans, Zoning Bylaws, Secondary plans (i.e. comprehensive OPAs), Urban Design Guidelines, and addressing all forms of public participation associated with these processes in our work as leaders in municipal planning departments and as consultants.

As well, our experience leading various planning departments in Ontario and Alberta has provided us with a unique skill set for helping local municipalities prepare their planning departments for the management of development permit applications associated with new Community Planning Permit Systems being introduced throughout Ontario.

Our team is also available to offer municipalities independent planning advice when needed. This advice may be needed to confirm advice provided by their planning staff or to offer appropriate alternatives when LPAT appeals are imminent and planning staff are not available to support Council’s position.
