BRAMPTON OFFICIAL PLAN REVIEW
 The Ontario Planning Act requires that an Official Plan be
reviewed at least every 5 years.
 Brampton’s review of its current 2006 Official Plan (approved in
2008) will update policies to guide land use planning, growth
management and development approval to 2041, within the
context of Provincial and Regional policies and Plans.
 Updating the Official Plan provides an opportunity to address
future changes in the physical planning of Brampton, and how
these may be integrated with other City initiatives for managing
sustainable economic, environmental and social change.
 The Official Plan Review includes a comprehensive assessment of
the City’s policies and designations for employment areas.
EMPLOYMENT AREAS IN BRAMPTON
 Brampton’s OP defines Employment Areas as:
“lands that are designated in Secondary Plans for clusters of
business and economic activities including, but not limited to,
manufacturing, warehousing, offices and associated retail and
ancillary uses.”
 Employment lands are required to ensure long-term economic
viability at the local and regional levels.
 Municipalities are required to conform to provincial policies to
promote economic development and competitiveness by:
o Providing for an appropriate mix of employment uses
o Planning, protecting and preserving employment lands for current
and future uses
MUNICIPAL COMPREHENSIVE REVIEW (MCR)
 Employment land conversion refers to the re-designation
of current employment lands for non- employment uses.
 The provincial Growth Plan requires that proposals to
convert lands in designated employment areas to nonemployment uses must undergo a Municipal
Comprehensive Review initiated by the municipality.
 Brampton has received a number of proposals for
employment land conversions and is undertaking a
Municipal Comprehensive Review to assess these
proposals as part of the current Official Plan Review.
MUNICIPAL COMPREHENSIVE REVIEW (MCR)
 An employment land conversion may be approved
where it has been demonstrated that:
o There is a need for the conversion
o The municipality will meet its allocated employment
forecasts
o The conversion will not adversely affect the overall
viability of the employment area
o There is existing or planned infrastructure to
accommodate the proposed use
o The lands are not required over the long term for
employment purposes
o Cross-jurisdictional issues have been considered
