Planning & Development


D.C. Slade Consultants Inc. have extensive experience in all facets of the planning and development industry.

David Slade MCIP, brings to the firm the experience from both the private and public sector.

Upon graduating from Ryerson University with a B.A.A in Urban Planning, Mr. Slade began a long association with the County of Grey, culminating in his appoointment as the Director of Planning for the County of Grey.

During that term, he implemented and administered a planning program for the County of Grey and the twenty-six member Municipalities. This involved liaising with Provincial Agencies, the County Council, private agencies and the general public.

In 1989 Mr. Slade left his position as Director of Grey County and became Vice-President for The Heritage Group, a land development company which was actively involved in many resort development projects in the Township of Collingwood and numerous commercial developments throughout Southern Ontario. In his capacity as Vice-President, Mr. Slade was intricately involved in all aspects of the land development process, from reviewing and making recommendations for prospective development proposals, acquiring planning, municipal, and government approvals, to the planning design layouts for future developments.

In March of 1991, Mr. Slade combined his experience from both the private and public sector, and formed his own planning and development company; D.C. Slade Consultants Inc.

Since it's incorporation, D.C. Slade Consultants Inc. have delved into many diverse projects, which include both urban and rural subdivisions, resort developments, condominium and site plan approvals, an Official Plan Study for the Township of Glenelg, consent applications, official plan and zoning by-law amendments, representation at Ontario Municipal Board Hearings, and general planning and development services.

The future of any proposed land development depends on the approval process of the provincial and local agencies. Having been involved with actual production and implementation of official plans and zoning by-laws, Mr. Slade has gained the expertise to interpret the goals and objectives of a diverse client group. This has enabled him to present development proposals to the respective agencies with the knowledge that will provide the client with an expedient and successful approval process.

His specialization and thorough knowledge of official plans and zoning by-laws has enabled him to be successful when representing clients that have been referred to the Ontario Municipal Board.

Many projects require an interdisciplinary approach with expertise from many professions. Often the firm is part of a larger team network. At other times a project management role is assumed providing direction to the sub-consultants. In these situations the firm has extensive experience as both team managers and team participants.

D.C. Slade Consultants Inc. provides a dedicated approach to the task at hand, and achieve the desired results in a proficient and cost effective manner. D.C. Slade Consultants Inc. are dedicated to provide planning and development services that will benefit the client and positively influence our environment.
