Municipality of Trent Lakes Official Plan
The Official Plan describes council’s policies on how land in the municipality should be used, and helps decide where roads, watermains, sewers, garbage dumps, parks and other services will be built. The Official Plan also provides a framework for establishing municipal zoning by-laws to set local regulations and standards, like the size of a lot and height of a building.
The Trent Lakes Official Plan is currently under review through the County of Peterborough Official Plan Review Project.
- Schedule A1 – Harvey Land Use (May 2010)

- Schedule A2 – Galway Land Use (May 2010)
- Schedule A3 – Cavendish Land Use (May 2010)
The County of Peterborough Official Plan Review
In 2017, the County of Peterborough initiated the development of a new Official Plan. Once the new Official Plan is in effect, it will function as the lower tier Official Plan for five local municipalities including Trent Lakes.

Comprehensive Zoning By-Law
A zoning by-law controls the use of land in your community. It states exactly:
– how each parcel may be used
– where buildings and other structures can be located
– the types of buildings that are permitted and how they may be used
– the lot sizes and dimensions, parking requirements, building heights and setbacks.
