Ontario Municipal Board Decision on ROPA 37

On November 29, 2010, the Ontario Municipal Board issued a decision (PDF file) on Regional Official Plan Amendment No. 37 (ROPA 37) “An Amendment to Incorporate the Basic Requirements of the Places to Grow Plan”.

All appeals to ROPA37 (PDF file) were withdrawn, except appeals related to subsections 38(a), 38(b) and 38(f)(11)(d).
