By decision dated 9 July 2014, the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing approved the majority of Toronto’s OPA 231, with some modifications. OPA 231 arises out of the City’s municipal comprehensive review relating to Economic Health and Employment Lands.
A decision is withheld for policy and land use designation changes applying to lands located within the floodplain Lower Don Special Policy Area because any change or modification to the OP policies, land use designations or boundaries applying to Special Policy Area lands must be approved by both MMAH and MNR prior to the approval authority approving such changes or modifications.
The appeal deadline for this decision is 29 July 2014.
