The Region's vision to create a "Community for Life" is supported by Peel 2051 planning efforts that ensure the future is filled with opportunities to live, work play, shop and get around in Peel. This work is supported through collaboration on various studies with the local municipalities to help meet their planning goals.
The City of Brampton, City of Mississauga and Town of Caledon must undertake their respective official plan reviews at more detailed planning level. Once the Regional Official Plan policies are approved by the Province, the Region will work to review and approve the local official plans.
