North West Brampton Policy Area Review

In 2016 Regional Council directed staff to begin the review of the North West Brampton Policy Area shale resources protection policies in the Regional Official Plan. The policies were inserted into the Official Plan in 2006, as a result of an Ontario Municipal Board decision that implemented minutes of settlement between the Region of Peel, the Province of Ontario and the City of Brampton. These parties agreed to include policies in the Regional Official Plan that would protect shale resources in advance of urban development. Any amendments to these policies were prohibited for a period of ten years.

After this period the Region, in collaboration with staff from the City of Brampton, has initiated a process to determine if it is in the public interest to replace the NWBPA with general urban land use designations.

The background study stage of the process is now completed. A staff report on the background study is being presenting to Regional Council on June 28, 2018. The staff report and technical studies are provided below:
