Site Plan Control

Site Plan Control

The Township of North Stormont regulates certain development activities through Site Plan Control. The end result is an agreement that is registered on title between the landowner and the Municipality. Site Plan Control addresses such issues as landscaping, parking, lighting, garbage collection, building location, screening and buffering to name a few. The Township applies site plan control to multi-residential developments, commercial and industrial uses. The end goal is to reduce any potential impacts on surrounding land uses.
