Livable Oakville Plan

The Livable Oakville Plan (2009 Town of Oakville Official Plan) applies to all lands within the town except the North Oakville East and West Secondary Plan areas. It sets out Council’s policies on how the lands should be used and growth should be managed through to 2031.

The Plan directs intensification and urban development to six growth areas: Midtown Oakville, Uptown Core, Palermo Village, Kerr Village, Bronte Village and Downtown Oakville. It also contains policies to maintain and protect the character of established residential areas.

Livable Oakville was prepared to conform to the Province of Ontario’s Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe, 2006 (“the Growth Plan”), as required by the Places to Grow Act, 2005. A town-wide Official Plan Review is currently underway.
