Focus Areas: Transportation
Regional Council Provides Direction to Proceed with Public Consultation
On October 26, 2017, Regional Council directed staff to proceed to a statutory public meeting and open houses on the Transportation draft Regional Official Plan Amendment (ROPA). Details of the open houses, public meeting, and how to provide comments will be provided soon.
Transportation plays an important role within the Region. Goods movement, regional roads and encouraging alternative modes of transportation, such as carpooling and active transportation encompass some of the key areas of transportation from a Regional perspective.
The Transportation component of Peel 2041: Regional Official Plan Review will take into account recently adopted studies, including the Regional Road Characterization Study, the Strategic Goods Movement Network Study, Freight TDM Study, and Active Transportation Study. The project will take input from the Region’s Growth Management Strategy work, and also involve the review and revision of current policies to ensure conformity with Provincial Plans and reflect regional initiatives including the Metrolinx Regional Transportation Plan.
Key deliverables for this project include:
- A revised set of transportation policies for the Official Plan;
- Revised transportation Schedules and Figures; and
- An updated Long Range Transportation Plan.
Regional staff will work with the area municipalities, the Province and other organizations on this review and update.
