Consolidated Official Plan Review and Update

The Town of East Gwillimbury’s Official Plan was adopted by Town Council on June 28, 2010. Following adoption, the Plan was submitted to the Regional Municipality of York for approval. Prior to Regional approval, the Official Plan was appealed to the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) under Section 17(40) of the Planning Act.  This section of the Act allows any person or public body to appeal to the OMB, where the approval authority (in this case the Region of York) fails to give notice of a decision within 180 days of receipt of the Official Plan. The majority of the Town of East Gwillimbury Official Plan (2010) was approved by the OMB through a series of Orders in 2013-2014 (as outlined below).
