The County of Brant will be hosting a number of upcoming public consultation meeting to gather input from local residents and business owners.
“We have a number of significant projects coming up and your feedback is important to shape future plans,” said Melissa Connor, Director of Communications and Public Relations. “When public engagement occurs, it is an opportunity for members of Council and staff to better understand your opinion, concerns and answer questions. Your feedback ultimately helps shape future decisions and directions, when possible.”
St. George Interim Control Bylaw

We invite you to attend an in-person, drop-in, open house to learn more about the study and next steps.
About the project: The County of Brant Council passed an Interim Control Bylaw to temporarily freeze the development of certain lands in St. George between July 2022 and July 2023. This Bylaw provides the County of Brant time to study and review its land use policies and coordinate servicing for future growth. As part of this project, the County of Brant is studying drinking water, wastewater treatment and sanitary sewage collection, stormwater management and a road network to address future traffic.
