As the province plans for recovery, the town is beginning to carefully and responsibly bring back services and reopen some public spaces, programs and services. Provincial emergency orders and the town’s physical distancing by-law remain in effect. We must all continue to follow guidelines from Public Health officials.
A town-initiated official plan amendment (OPA) to the Livable Oakville Plan is proposed as described in the notice below. It affects the entire Livable Oakville Plan area, being all lands south of Dundas Street and north of Highway 407.
On September 26, 2017 Town Council adopted OPA 16 (Cultural Heritage Policy Updates) to the Livable Oakville Plan.
On April 26, 2018 Halton Region approved OPA 16 as it was deemed to be consistent with the 2014 Provincial Policy Statement and to conform with the 2009 Regional Official Plan and the 2017 Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe. That decision was appealed to the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT). As a result, OPA 16 is not in full force and effect.
Before the LPAT holds a hearing about an appeal, it holds a case management conference to deal with procedural matters. A case management conference related to the appeals of OPA 15 (Urban Structure) and OPA 16 has been scheduled to take place on February 26, 2019 at 10 a.m. at Town Hall, 1225 Trafalgar Road. Visit the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal E-Status page for more information (LPAT Case No. PL180580).
