Boundary adjustment public meetings held by Woodstock and Norwich

Posted on Tuesday July 02, 2024

Oxford County, ON — The City of Woodstock and Township of Norwich held two public meetings on Thursday, June 27 to share more information about the proposed boundary adjustment between the communities.

Property owners heard from City, Township and County staff about the lands under consideration, the reasons for the boundary adjustment and how municipal taxes, services and by-laws would change.

“A boundary adjustment is a significant undertaking and this is an important process to plan for the future of both of our communities,” said David Creery, Chief Administrative Office for the City of Woodstock. “We want to reassure property owners that this is not an expropriation. Land use does not change as a result of a boundary adjustment.”

During the meetings, the public had the opportunity to ask questions and share their concerns about future development of the land and the financial impacts to property owners.

“The Township and the City are taking this matter very seriously and we are here to listen. No decisions have been made yet. We encourage residents to continue to share their feedback so that our Councils can make an informed decision,” said Lee Robinson, Chief Administrative Officer for Township of Norwich.

Written comments can be submitted until Aug. 2, 2024. Comments can be sent to or and must include your name and address. Anonymous comments will not be accepted.

The feedback and details of the final proposal will be presented in a report at the following meetings:

  • Norwich Township Council — Aug. 13, 2024
  • City of Woodstock Council — Aug. 15, 2024
  • Oxford County Council — Sept. 11, 2024

The draft proposal must be approved by all three councils before it can be submitted to the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing for their approval.
