Deadline Extended for Comments on Land Use Plans

August 10, 2016 | Government of Ontario

On May 10, 2016, Ontario released proposed changes to the Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe, the Greenbelt Plan, the Oak Ridges Moraine Conservation Plan and the Niagara Escarpment Plan.

Due to high interest in the review and in response to requests made by several municipalities and stakeholder organizations, the deadline is being extended for comments to be submitted on the four proposed revised plans.

The deadline to provide input on the four proposed revised plans has been extended to October 31, 2016.

The proposed changes were informed by the feedback received from Indigenous communities, the public, municipalities, stakeholders and the Advisory Panel appointed to provide recommendations on how to make the plans better.

Please visit the Co-ordinated Land Use Planning Review website at to find “Shaping Land Use in the Greater Golden Horseshoe,” a guide to proposed changes to the land use plans, and the four proposed revised plans. Comments and feedback can also be submitted through the website.
