As part of the Town of Oakville’s ongoing Official Plan Review, the land use designations and policies that apply to Bronte Village have been updated. In December 2017, Council passed By-law 2017-118 to adopt Official Plan Amendment 18 (OPA 18: Bronte Village) to the Livable Oakville Plan. OPA 18 was then approved by Halton Region and it came into effect on June 20, 2018.
Staff presented draft changes to the policies that guide growth and change in Bronte Village and received comments from the public.
Staff presented 10 draft directions and received public feedback.
Staff held an open house to begin a dialogue about the Bronte Village Growth Area Review. Staff heard many ideas about ways to make Bronte Village an even better place.
Bronte Village is one of six growth areas identified in the Livable Oakville Plan. Growth areas are to accommodate the majority of new growth and development south of Dundas Street. Bronte Village is intended to be revitalized as a mixed use area with a thriving commercial area and a variety of housing options that provide a year round environment for residents, employees, and visitors.
