Official Plan Amendment and Re-Zoning Applications

LAND USE PLANNING - Official Plan Amendment and Re-Zoning Applications

Development proposals that require amendments to a municipality's official plan and zoning by‑laws often trigger complex land use planning issues that require the coordination, submission and analysis of technical reports and studies, as well as significant legal analysis and procedural know-how. We regularly assist property developers as well as individual landowners in navigating this process, from the application stage, to submissions before municipal council, to appeals before the Ontario Municipal Board.

Our lawyers have managed many significant official plan and zoning by-law amendment projects, including some of the largest in Ontario. Some of these projects include:

  • City of Toronto Railway Lands
  • Town of Aurora Office Plan Amendment 17, Secondary Plan Area
  • Vaughan 400 Industrial Park
  • Region of Niagara Official Plan
  • St. Mary's Cement, Bathurst Street and Fleet Street, City of Toronto
  • Official Plan Amendment 332, City of Vaughan (Secondary Plan, Maple)
