Peel's water resources help sustain social, economic and environmental wellbeing. We will update the Region's official plan policies as best practice guidance and provincial policies for protecting water resources advance.
Peel 2051 proposed policies would:
- ensure consistency with provincial legislation;
- strengthen policy direction for stormwater management;
- provide policy direction for integrating watershed planning and growth management;
- direct local municipalities in identifying, protecting and enhancing water resources, features and areas; and,
- protect drinking water from land uses that may have negative impacts.
