Burlington’s New Official Plan: Halton Region Draft Notice of Decision

As the approval authority, Halton Region is reviewing the City’s adopted Official Plan (2018).

On Thursday, Nov. 26, at the Community Planning, Regulation and Mobility Committee, and at a Special Council Meeting immediately following, City Council will decide if they will endorse the modifications found within the Region’s draft Notice of Decision related to the adopted Burlington Official Plan (2018).

City staff have collaborated extensively with Regional staff to:

  • address issues of Regional and Provincial conformity,
  • respond to Provincial policy updates occurring post-plan adoption,
  • identify opportunities to enhance structure and readability, and
  • incorporate housekeeping changes.

City staff have also requested that the Region consider the proposed modifications endorsed by City Council through the Scoped Re-examination of the adopted Official Plan in its decision.


The Halton Region [tag] draft Notice of Decision and the accompanying City staff report are now available on the Community Planning, Regulation and Mobility agenda.


Modifications to the adopted Burlington Official Plan fall into the categories of Regional Conformity, Provincial Conformity, Clarity and Consistency, City-Initiated Scoped Re-Examination of the Official Plan, Official Plan Amendments, and Housekeeping. For a description of the categories of the proposed modifications please refer to Staff Report PL-22-20 and the draft Notice of Decision attached as Appendix A to PL-22-20.


With the proposed modifications described in the draft Notice of Decision, Halton Region is of the opinion that the City of Burlington New Official Plan conforms to, or does not conflict with, the Regional Official Plan, is consistent with the Provincial Policy Statement 2020, and conforms to, or does not conflict with, the applicable Provincial Plans and policies.
