Toronto's Official Plan Review and how it affects us

The Official Plan sets out the vision for where and how Toronto will grow to the year 2031. 

The Province's Planning Act  requires a municipality to review its Official Plan at least every 5 years. Toronto's Official Plan came into force in 2006 (after amalgamation), so the City had to commence an Official Plan Review in 2011.

The Official Plan Review studied what policies are working, what policies need to be updated, revised or deleted, and what new policies are required to be added as a result of recent provincial legislation.

On November 8 2012,
the City Planning Dep't published their Official Plan  Review.  The purpose of the review was to  provide direction on which lands to keep as "employment" and which could be converted to commercial, mixed-use and/or residential.  There  are 8 properties in Wards 8, 9 and 10 where the owners have submitted requests for conversion.  All of them are recommended for re-designation to "Re-generation Areas." 

These properties are:
50 Wilson Heights - request to re-designate land to permit residential  & commercial

4 Tippett Road - request to re-designate land to mixed use

6 Tippett - request for re-designation
9 Tippet Road - see above

30 Tippet Road- see above

20-62 Murray Road - request to convert lands to residential

3621 Dufferin Street - see above

1140 Sheppard West - request to permit two 15 storey residential buildings with retail at grade along with permitted office use.
