Planning and Development

The Township of Horton’s Planning Advisory Committee is comprised of Council Members and meets during the Regular Council Meeting on the first and third Tuesday of each month.

The Township utilizes the services of the County of Renfrew planners to assist them with various planning matters.  The planners also provide a pre-consultation service to residents of the Township (or their agents) when they are proposing minor variances or consents as well as official plan or zoning by-law amendments and new subdivisions.
