After a 9 hour meeting of Halton Regional Council, 58 delegations expressed their views on a planning proposal to expand Halton’s Urban Boundary to include 5,000 acres of farmland. A motion presented by Mayor Burton for a No Urban Boundary Expansion passed 15 – 9 with unanimous support from Oakville Regional Councillors to preserve farmland. You can read Mayor Burton’s remarks prior to the vote and the Notice of Motion.
The recommendation on the Preferred Growth Concept will not be considered by Regional Council on February 9, 2022 as originally scheduled. The consideration of the Region's Preferred Concept will be rescheduled to a future meeting. There will be an opportunity for the public to provide written submissions and delegations at that time. To register and receive a notification when the opportunity becomes available, please email the Regional Clerk.
At the January 18, 2022 Planning and Development Council meeting, Council heard from more than 14 delegations and received more than 100 written submissions from residents who were not in favour of the Region’s draft PGC. The town is instead supporting further intensification within existing urban areas available and designated for development. Read the full report here
