The Township of Scugog Planning department reviews and processes all planning and development applications. Learn more about active planning applications on the Township's Current Planning Applications page.

For new applications, you may be required to submit several planning applications depending on the complexity of the proposed project. We recommend that you arrange a pre-consultation meeting with our Planning department staff before you submit any planning applications. At the pre-consultation meeting, Township staff and other appropriate agencies address potential issues associated with a specific development proposal and/or change in land use.
