Rama Road Secondary Plan (Approved Dec 17, 2007 - Modified by County of Simcoe, October 2008)
The Official Plan provides a policy framework intended primarily to manage and direct physical development and its effects on the social, economic and natural environment of Ramara Township.
- The plan outlines the Township's goals and objectives, states the policies to be followed and outlines the means for carrying out the policies.
- Policies indicate positions to be followed and outline the means for carrying out the policies.
- Policies indicate positions to which Township Council is committed and describe processes to be followed in arriving at decisions.
- The Official Plan provides the framework intended to reduce the element of uncertainty as to the manner and sequence of growth and land use changes so that coordination of public and private investment can occur. This plan:
- Is a consolidation, blending and update to the Official Plans for the former Townships of Rama and Mara
- Reflects local initiatives and circumstances unique to Township of Ramara as a whole and of specific areas within the Township in particular
- Although the policies adopted are to guide changes in the physical structure of the Township, such changes should be in harmony with social needs, economic needs, municipal financial capabilities, environmental considerations and the management of natural resources. The Official Plan, therefore, contains much more than a set of land use controls.
