Regional Phasing

Regional Phasing ties new development and infrastructure expansions to meet the timing of growth assigned through the Regional Growth Strategy. Learn about Regional Phasing at Halton.

In December 2009, Regional Council adopted ROPA 38, which became the new Regional Official Plan (2009).

Policies in the new Regional Official Plan (ROP) require Halton Region to update the phasing of growth (of new urban lands) to the year 2031, and to update Map 5 of the ROP to show this phasing. The purpose of this Amendment is to address these required changes.

On July 13, 2011, Regional Council adopted Regional Official Plan Amendment No. 39 (ROPA 39).
