Site Plan Approval Applications


Under Section 41 of the Planning Act, the Council of the City of Mississauga passed a Site Plan Control By-law, designating all of the lands within the municipality, with certain exceptions, as a Site Plan Control area.

The Site Plan Approval process is a key component of the implementation of the policies in Mississauga Official Plan. These policies are contained in the Urban Structure, Character Area and Land Use Designation sections of the Plan and relate to technical matters such as transportation, environment and design.

The City’s Zoning By-law also implements the objectives and policies of Mississauga Official Plan. The Zoning By-law controls the use of land in the municipality. For example, it states exactly:

  • how land may be used

  • where buildings and other structures can be located

  • the types of buildings that are permitted and how they may be used

  • the lot sizes and dimensions, parking requirements, building heights and setbacks from the street.

If your development proposal is subject to Site Plan Approval, a pre-application meeting with the Planning Services Centre is required, prior to submitting a Site Plan application. The pre-application meeting will allow City staff an opportunity to identify application submission requirements and high level issues which will assist in reducing the time required to obtain approvals.

New detached homes /renovations in some areas of the City are subject to Site Plan Approval. Site Plan Infill Residential Drawing Checklists will assist in preparing your drawings.

The following forms and documents pertain to the Site Plan Approval process.
