Ontario Planning and Development Act

Email this page

The Parkway Belt West Plan and Central Pickering Development Plan are development plans prepared under the Ontario Planning and Development Act, 1994

The Ontario Planning and Development Act requires public participation in the preparation of a proposed development plan, and permits the Minister to propose modifications to a development Plan.

In many respects, a development plan under the Ontario Planning and Development Act is similar to an official plan under the Planning Act. The primary differences are:

  • the Province is the authority for both undertaking and approving a development plan
  • the legislative requirements for the preparation and approval of a development plan are unique to the Ontario Planning and Development Act.
