A review and update of the Town of Orangeville's Official Plan is currently underway.

Project status

The Planning Act requires municipalities to periodically update their Official Plans to ensure they maintain alignment with provincial policy direction and continue to effectively implement evolving local planning interests. The Town began its review of its Official Plan in the spring of 2015. Following the completion of supporting land needs assessment studies, the process was put on hold, primarily due to changes made by the province to prevailing provincial plan framework (i.e. Growth Plan) that occurred through 2016-2017.

Since then, the Official Plan Review has been reinitiated and has been split in two phases.  Phase 1 is focusing on updates to non-growth management and land use-related aspects, similar to a housekeeping review and update. Phase 2 will focus on the growth management and land use allocation aspect, and will commence at a later point in time.
