• Public open houses: Land Use Planning in the Greater Golden Horseshoe


    On May 10, the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry released proposed changes to four land use plans: Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe, the Greenbelt Plan, the Oak Ridges Moraine Conservation Plan and the Niagara Escarpment Plan.

    The province is seeking feedback on the proposed changes until September 30, 2016. 12 public open houses were  planned across the Greater Golden Horseshoe and Niagara Escarpment Plan Area to provide an opportunity to learn more about the proposed changes to the four plans. You are invited to attend one of the remaining public open houses:
