On June 16, 2020 the Province released proposed Amendment No. 1 to the Growth Plan, 2019 and a proposed new Land Needs Assessment (LNA) Methodology for a public consultation period ending on July 31, 2020. Proposed Amendment No. 1 extends the planning horizon of the Growth Plan from 2041 to 2051, and identifies new population and employment forecasts to the 2051 planning horizon.
The Regional Urban Structure Discussion Paper was completed prior to the release of these documents, however the information contained in the Discussion Paper remains relevant for the purposes of public consultation on a proposed Regional Urban Structure. Amendment No. 1 and the new LNA methodology, if brought into force and effect by the Province, will be addressed in the next stage of the Integrated Growth Management Strategy.
