As part of the Peel 2041+ Regional Official Plan review and Municipal Comprehensive Review, we will explore policy changes in specific focus areas.

Find details on the various focus area projects and technical studies that are being undertaken to support policy development.

Have your say

Public open houses were held online for growth related focus area draft policies and settlement area boundary draft technical studies between September 21st through October 1st.

Due to Covid-19 related restrictions, the public joined various online forums to learn about the proposed policy changes and engage with staff. Information presented at these consultation sessions is available under Upcoming Consultations until Friday October 23rd.

The Region will be consulting on all focus areas throughout the consultation process. Read more about supporting projects and studies for each focus area:

Other information

A draft version of proposed Official Plan policies to date has been compiled to help track changes being recommended. The previous December 2018 Regional Official Plan Office Consolidation has been updated to now illustrate tracked changes for draft policies as of June 25, 2020. These tracked changes show proposed updates to the existing policies including draft deletions and additions for:

  • growth related focus areas in green text (including growth management, major transit station area, housing, transportation, greenlands system, waste management, cultural heritage and Indigenous engagement);
  • environment related focus areas in red text (including some updates to climate change, wildland fire, Provincial Greenbelt plans, agricultural and rural systems, and water resources)

The Policy and Mapping Summary Table provides a quick high-level summary of the key policy and mapping changes proposed through the Environment related policies/mapping in December 2019 and through the Growth related policies/mapping in June 2020.

This information has been prepared as reference for consultation purposes only, and does not represent adopted, approved or in-effect policies (see in-effect Official Plan and adopting by-law itself for current policies).

The information on the maps listed have been prepared as a reference for consultation purposes only. The proposed maps give visualization of proposed policy areas and do not represent adopted, approved or in-effect mapping.

The in-effect Official Plan schedules and figures, adopting by-law itself and any amending by-laws or Local Planning Appeal Tribunal decisions must be consulted for the official data. See the Official Plan maps for all in-effect maps.
