Peel 2041+ public consultation

Fall consultation sessions are coming soon.

Peel 2041+ is the Region’s Official Plan Review and Municipal Comprehensive Review (MCR), which will 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.

Join the upcoming online consultation sessions to provide your input on draft Growth Related Focus Area policies and mapping that will guide how your community grow. Regional staff will also consult on the draft technical studies supporting the Settlement Area Boundary Expansion focus area and provide updates on all other focus areas.

Please access the 9-minute introductory video in advance of the live consultation sessions for key background information on the Peel 2041+ Region's Official Plan Review and MCR.

A draft version of proposed Official Plan policies and mapping to date has been compiled to help track changes being recommended, and can be found on the focus areas webpage.

Major Transit Station Areas

Major Transit Station Areas (MTSAs) are lands within an approximate 500-800 metre radius of a transit station or stop, primarily along existing or planned transit corridors. MTSAs are intended to be developed as high density, mixed-use, transit-supportive neighbourhoods that provide access to local amenities, jobs, housing, and recreation opportunities. You will learn about:

  • Potential stations
  • Station profiles
  • Policy framework

Housing

  • Density and intensification
  • Targets and implementation

Transportation

Peel's transportation network is one of the most travelled in the GTHA and therefore plays a vital role for moving people and goods both within and beyond Peel. Peel is focusing on providing a network that balances the needs of moving goods and all road users through road improvements, sustainable transportation infrastructure, and major provincial infrastructure.

Transportation display boards

Greenlands System

The Greenlands System in Peel is comprised of features (such as rivers and forests) and the surrounding areas. This connected natural system provides for clean water and air, habitat for plants and animals, as well as cultural, recreational and health benefits. Peel is developing a Greenlands System Strategy to update the Region's natural heritage system policies and identify a Regional Natural Heritage System.

Other focus areas

Following our review of Provincial plans, legislation, policy direction and Regional strategies, we have identified other focus areas. These other focus – waste management, cultural heritage and Indigenous engagement – will require changes to Regional Official Plan policies to stay consistent and conform to Provincial plans and legislation.

Other information

The Region's vision to create a "Community for Life" is supported by Peel 2041+ 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.
