Urban Structure Review: Where and how should Oakville grow?

The town must consider how to accommodate required growth given that development in all areas of the town is underway or planned. Instead of developing outward, the town needs to determine the best approach for managing development within the town’s existing boundaries.

Oakville’s Urban Structure Review is looking at the town’s urban structure — including natural heritage and open space, as well as residential, commercial, employment and mixed-use areas – to see if changes are necessary to accommodate growth.

The purpose of these draft amendments is to incorporate into the Livable Oakville Plan modifications to the text and schedules in order to provide for a town-wide urban structure and establish the basis for official plan policy and for making planning decisions. The draft amendments will provide a framework for where and how the town will grow, while protecting greenspaces and established neighbourhoods from development pressure. The amendments will also provide for revisions to the North Oakville East and West Secondary Plans to align them with the changes to the Livable Oakville Plan.

Drop in and provide your input!

Join us at one of two public information meetings and provide your feedback on the draft Official Plan Amendments. Each session will include a formal presentation and question period as well as open house displays, with an opportunity to provide feedback and have one-on-one discussions with staff.

Check out the planning documents

The public may view planning documents and background material at the Planning Services department at Town Hall between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, or on the town’s website
