Durham Region - Special Meeting re: Envision Durham

April 08, 2023 2:29 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

The Regional Municipality of Durham has scheduled a Special Meeting of Durham Regional Council to consider adoption of the recommended final draft of the Regional Official Plan (ROP).  The new ROP is the culmination of work completed through Envision Durham, the Municipal Comprehensive Review (MCR) of Durham's existing ROP.

Materials to be considered at the Special Meeting, including the recommended final draft ROP, will be available to the public no later than May 3 at durham.ca/EnvisionDurham.  

This special meeting is open to the public and is being held to discuss the final revisions addressed through Envision Durham.  The ROP addresses a wide variety of strategic land use planning and development matters.  It also represents the Region's provincially mandated exercise to ensure that the ROP conforms with Provincial Plans or does not conflict with them; has regard to matters of provincial interest; and is consistent with the Provincial Policy Statement.  This special meeting is a follow-up to the Public Open House and Public Meeting held in March 2023 for the draft new ROP.  The draft new ROP was released on February 10 with a consultation period that concluded on April 3.

It is anticipated that a decision on the recommended final draft ROP will take place at this Special Meeting of Council.  Once adopted by Regional Council, the adopted ROP will be submitted to the Minister of Municipal Affairs for approval under Sections 17 and 26 of the Planning Act, RSO 1990.

The meeting will be held on May 17, 2023 at 9:30 a.m. in Council Chambers at Durham Region Headquarters (605 Rossland Road East in Whitby).  Participants may also view the meeting remotely at durham.ca/live.

If you wish to make a delegation before Council, please submit your request in writing to delegations@durham.ca by noon on Monday, May 15, 2023.
