The Projects

The Land Evaluation and Area Review (LEAR) is an agricultural background study being undertaken to inform future amendments to the Region of Peel and Town of Caledon Official Plans. Developed by the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Food (OMAF), a LEAR is a study methodology which serves as the Provincial standard for the identification and refinement of Prime Agricultural Areas by municipalities in their Official Plans.

The Minimum Distance Separation (MDS) Review is a background study being undertaken to review the application of the Provincial MDS formulae in the Town of Caledon to ensure that Provincial policy for minimizing land use conflicts in the rural area is effective. MDS is a planning method that utilizes setbacks to separate new or expanding livestock barns or manure storage from new or expanding non-farm uses as a means to address odour. This study will be used to inform the Region and Town’s comments on the 2015 Provincial MDS review.

Additional Information and Notification

Copies of background information will be available to the public at the Public Information Open House.

Public comments on the studies to assist the Region of Peel and Town of Caledon with its review are being collected until April 30, 2014. These comments will be maintained on file for use during the studies and may be included in project documentation.
