Site Planning is a tool used in Chatham-Kent when property is being developed to coordinate the developer’s needs as well as the interests of the community, and use of public resources.   It is extremely valuable in implementing Chatham-Kent’s goals for continuous improvement towards being a welcoming, active and sustainable place to work and live. All of Chatham Kent’s specific goals are found in the Official Plan.

Site Plan Approval:

  • Implements Chatham-Kent’s Official Plan and Zoning By-law
  • Coordinates municipal servicing, public safety and compatibility of land uses
  • Provides opportunities for being a healthier and progressive place
  • Respects individual choice, style and budget

Please note that as part of the Site Plan process, the Municipality of Chatham-Kent requires all storm water management facilities for industrial lands to address storm water quantity and quality. For more information, the Storm Water Management Memo can be downloaded here.
