Consolidated Official Plan Review and Update

Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) Approved Official Plan

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) has approved by the OMB effective March 27, 2013, July 18, 2013, October 4, 2013, March 5, 2014, April 28, 2014, May 28, 2014 and July 17, 2014.
