Public consultations

Statutory consultations were held in October and November 2021.

Peel 2051 is the Region's Official Plan Review and Municipal Comprehensive Review (MCR), which resulted in a new Official Plan to help us better plan for the future by taking action on new population and employment forecasts, responding to public and stakeholder feedback, and complying with new provincial legislation, plans, and policies.

On April 28, 2022, Regional Council passed By-law 20-2022 to adopt the Region of Peel Official Plan (RPOP). The RPOP was approved by the Province with modifications.

The Region's vision to create a "Community for Life" is supported by Peel 2051 planning efforts that ensure the future is filled with opportunities to live, work play, shop and get around in Peel. This work is supported through collaboration on various studies with the local municipalities to help meet their planning goals.

The City of Brampton, City of Mississauga and Town of Caledon must undertake their respective official plan reviews at more detailed planning level. Once the Regional Official Plan policies are approved by the Province, the Region will work to review and approve the local official plans.
