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. Past consultation materials can be found under Upcoming Consultations.
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 2041 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.
