Planning and development

The Planning and Development Services Division plans and manages growth and development in Peel Region through research, policy, meaningful consultation, engagement, and development review to ensure communities in Peel are complete and sustainable for residents and businesses.

In April 2024, the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing introduced an omnibus legislation, Bill 185, Cutting Red Tape to Build More Homes Act. Bill 185 decrees that Peel Region’s land use planning and development responsibilities will move to the lower tier municipalities, effective July 1, 2024. Land use planning responsibilities in Halton Region and York Region will also shift to lower tier municipalities on that date.
