An Official Plan is a document that sets out the land use policy directions for long-term growth and development in a municipality.
The Minister of Municipal Affairs approved the Oshawa Official Plan on February 12, 1987.
The Plan is regularly reviewed to ensure that it continues to meet the changing economic, social and environmental needs of the City. Changes to the Official Plan are sometimes required to allow new development or redevelopment proposals. Opportunities for public review and input are provided through the Official Plan Amendment process.
The Official Plan Process document provides an outline of the application process.
To apply for an amendment to the Oshawa Official Plan, complete the Application for an Official Plan Amendment and submit to the Planning Services Branch.
