Certain policies of the Halton Region Official Plan as amended by Regional Official Plan Amendment No. 38 (ROPA 38) are now in force and effect. The Ontario Municipal Board has issued
four Orders (January 13, 2016 (PDF file),March 17, 2015 (PDF file), February 4, 2014 (PDF file) and October 2, 2014 (PDF file)) which confirm the approval of certain policies of the Halton Regional Official Plan.
The Halton Region Official Plan Package (PDF file) contains the OMB
Orders, a new Interim Office Consolidation of the Plan, and an explanation of how the Plan should be read.
The Regional Official Plan (ROP) is Halton’s guiding document for land use planning. It contains the goals, objectives, and policies that manage growth and direct physical change and its effects on the social, economic and natural environment of the Region.
The ROP is reviewed periodically to ensure that it remains responsive to Halton’s needs and the vision of Regional Council. The last review – called
Sustainable Halton – was undertaken to update the Halton Region Official Plan . It culminated on December 16, 2009 with Regional Council unanimously adopting
Regional Official Plan Amendment No. 38 (ROPA 38). In 2011, the Province modified and approved ROPA 38. This decision was subsequently appealed in its entirety to the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB). The OMB hearing process to address the appeals began in mid-2012 and is currently ongoing.
On January 13, 2016, the OMB issued an Order confirming the approvals in principle it granted on
May 7, 2015, May 19, 2015, June 15, 2015, and September 28, 2015. This is in addition to Orders dated March 17, 2015, October 2, 2014
and February 4, 2014.
Certain policies of the Regional Official Plan are now approved and in force as of the date set out in the OMB Order, subject to site specific or area specific matters. The new
September 28, 2015 Interim Office Consolidation has been prepared to show those policies that are approved and in force as well as those policies that remain under appeal. For those policies that remain under appeal, the concurrent policies of the ROP  continue to apply.
