Have your say

We're hosting a variety of public meetings and surveys throughout the creation of the Orbit Potential & Innovation Plan (OPIP). The OPIP is our coordinated Servicing Plan and Secondary Planning approach that will guide the implementation of Innisfil’s vision for Orbit: a community that will help us grow while preserving our agricultural and natural landscapes.

Orbit Secondary Plan (Official Plan Amendment)

We hosted a Statutory Public Meeting with Innisfil Town Council on March 15, 2023 to review the draft Orbit Secondary Plan and receive public feedback. You can submit written comments up until Town Council gives final consideration to the proposal by email to orbit@innisfil.ca or by mail to Town Hall.

The Orbit Secondary Plan covers themes such as:

  • Land use
  • Mobility
  • Public spaces
  • Recreation
  • Built form
  • Road networks

As a result of public feedback received to date, including at the Statutory Public Meeting, a revised draft Orbit Secondary Plan has been prepared and will be presented to Council for approval in February 2024. You can review the draft document in advance of the meeting for information.

What is a Secondary Plan?
A Secondary Plan is a land use plan for a particular area of a municipality that:
  • Is prepared as an amendment to the Official Plan
  • Established more detailed policies for the area it covers
  • Often provides direction with respect to land uses, building heights, public spaces, parks and urban design
  • Promotes a desired type of form of development and infrastructure
