How development proposals work

All active development proposals, including Zoning By-law and Official Plan amendments are listed below. These proposals require approval from City Council  before they can proceed. Some proposals remain active because they received conditional approval from Council and are in the process of meeting conditions. Others have been appealed to the Ontario Land Tribunal (OLT) and await a final decision. 

A typical planning application process:

  1. The City receives a complete application.
  2. The City notifies the public and requests feedback from surrounding property owners and public agencies about the application.
  3. The Applicant presents their application to the applicable decision maker i.e. City Council or the Committee of Adjustment.
  4. Feedback is received as written submissions and/or heard at a public meeting.
  5. City staff review the application, including feedback received, and provide their recommendation to the decision maker.
  6. City Council or the Committee of Adjustment reaches a decision.
  7. Depending on the type of application, an appeal of the decision can be made to the Ontario Land Tribunal (OLT).
  8. The OLT hears the application and renders a final decision.

City Council's agenda for a public meeting will include the staff report and the proposed by-law(s) for each scheduled planning application. The agenda is posted the Wednesday before the public meeting. View the City Council's agendas and minutes
