Making sure Prince Edward County is on a level playing field is the intent of a report from staff when it comes to the planning process.
Councillor Kevin Gale asked for the report regarding the Planning Department’s Consent Application criteria as he has heard the process has become “cumbersome, expensive for applicants and frustrating”.
He wants to compare the County’s process to neighbouring municipalities and see if they are in line.
Councillor Steve Ferguson agreed saying the process is onerous.
CAO James Hepburn told those around the horseshoe the processes are in place to help mitigate risks to the municipality.
A report will come back to council at a later date.
