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

Public Transportation Plan and Business Case

The County and The County Foundation developed the public transportation plan and business case, in collaboration with the Prince Edward County Transportation Project Steering Committee (Vital Signs Getting Around Group). The federal government provided funding through the Public Transit Infrastructure Fund to assist with the development of the plan.

Council approved the public transportation plan and business case in Spring 2018. The County has received $500,000 in provincial grant funding over the next five years to implement the plan. More details:
