A tracked-changes version of the new Region of Peel Official Plan, dated March 31, 2022, is available.

The Peel 2051 Regional Official Plan Review Mapping comparison table provides details on differences between current in-effect mapping, the drafts presented for statutory consultation in Fall 2021, and the versions forwarded for Regional Council Adoption.

This version of the consolidation includes further recommended policy changes in response to stakeholder and public comments received during and after the statutory consultation period. Please note:
