North Grenville's Development Review Team (DRT) offers a one-window approach for developers to pre-consult on the technical, engineering and planning approval requirements for their proposals. Formed in 2006, the DRT allows the Municipality to manage the growth and development of the community in an efficient and comprehensive manner.
The DRT gets all of the right people in the same room at the same time, so developers can get all of their questions answered at once. This eliminates the potential for conflicting and overlapping advice, and results in comprehensive, timely planning recommendations and approvals.
The DRT is a key element in making North Grenville investment ready.
The Team is made up of representatives from the Municipality's Planning, Building, Public Works, Parks & Recreation and Economic Development Departments as well as staff from the County Planning Department, the local Conservation Authorities, the local Health Unit and the Fire Department.
The DRT has helped to position the Municipality as an active partner in the growth and development of the Community and a preferred place to do business. Focusing on Client Service rather than "regulation" gives North Grenville a competitive advantage over other communities.
