The County of Barrhead has a number of planning documents and policies to guide development of lands within the County, surrounding hamlets, and environmentally sensitive areas such as the lakes and rivers. Feel free to explore our planning policies and the Land Use Bylaw, which provide clarity on the planning and development process within the County of Barrhead. For more information on how these planning documents are made and what they mean for you, view the provincial government's guide on Common Landowner Questions.
We encourage you to talk with us prior to any development, subdivision, or land use changes. We are here to assist and guide you through all the processes required. Before building or subdividing land, take a look at the necessary planning and development forms that may be required.
