Category:Land Use Planning and Development
Over the past decade, there have been dramatic changes in land use planning in Ontario, due to the shifting balance between the provincial and municipal roles in land use decisions, the creation of regionally based land use plans such as the Greenbelt Plan, and the introduction of growth plans to encourage urban intensification.
During this time, the Environmental Commissioner of Ontario (ECO) has documented, reviewed and analyzed the significant changes in land use planning law and policy and made many recommendations, some of which have prompted further action by the provincial government.
In 2012, the ECO released a primer called Land Use Planning in Ontario, Primer and Recommendations of the Environmental Commissioner of Ontario.
