Community Planning

The Community Planning Office plays a central role in the planning and management of new development in the County. Each development proposal is evaluated according to its compatibility with adjacent land uses as well as Oxford County’s social, economic, heritage and natural environments.

Some of the things we do: 
  • Forecast population and land needs
  • Develop land use and resource policies
  • Conduct research
  • Prepare by-laws
  • Evaluate development proposals
  • Assist in groundwater protection

Oxford County is taking steps to support our community's response to COVID-19 (coronavirus disease) and measures taken by Southwestern Public Health. We are monitoring our operations daily to ensure we are taking the right actions to protect our residents, employees and visitors. Get updates at
