There are no scheduled public consultation meetings at this time. Please see a list of projects below that are still open for additional comment.

Short-term Accomodations 

The County of Prince Edward is seeking the public’s input regarding short-term accommodations in the municipality. 

Short-term accommodation rentals can be defined as all, or part, of a dwelling unit used to provide sleeping accommodation for vacationing members of the public, but may also include persons travelling for business or work purposes.

To learn more, visit the project page on the County of Prince Edward website.

Have your say: The County strongly encourages respondents to read Short-term Accommodation -- A Discussion of Issues and Options before filling out the survey. The online survey is open until Monday, June 4.  Hard copies of the survey and discussion document are available by request at Shire Hall (332 Picton Main Street, Picton).

Small Homes

The County of Prince Edward is undertaking a review of issues and options related to the development of small homes.

Currently for many zones, the Comprehensive Zoning By-law establishes a minimum gross floor area of 75 square metres for a single-detached home. Public views and opinions are sought to determine the general desirability for small homes, whether small homes are viewed to assist with housing affordability, and any specific issues related to this topic.

Have your say: What is meant by “small homes”? Are small homes desirable? If so, how and where might small homes be best accommodated?

If you would like to share your views and opinions, please refer to the Small Homes Discussion Paper and Questionnaire. Hard copies of the document are also available at Shire Hall (332 Picton Main Street) during regular business hours.

More information: Please contact Paul Walsh, Manager of Planning, at 613.476.2148 ext. 2025 or
