Pursuant to Subsection 26(4) of the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. P.13, as amended.

Please provide your input! You are invited to attend a Special Meeting of Council to provide input as the Town launches its Official Plan Update for Growth Management to 2051.

Under the Planning Act, all municipalities in Ontario are required to have an Official Plan. The Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury’s (BWG’s) current Official Plan establishes a vision for growth and development in the Town to the year 2031.

In accordance with provincial policies, the County of Simcoe adopted Amendment No. 7 to its Official Plan (SCOPA No. 7) which allocates residential and employment growth to the Town of BWG to the year 2051. Between 2021 and 2051, SCOPA No. 7 forecasts that the Town of BWG will grow by approximately 40,000 additional people (approximately 83,470 people by 2051) and by approximately 19,000 additional jobs (approximately 30,900 jobs by 2051).

As a result of these recent changes, the Town’s Official Plan needs to be updated to ensure its policies are up to date and are reflective of the current and future needs of the community. The Official Plan Update for Growth Management is intended to help implement provincial and upper-tier policies in order to support and accommodate the Town’s growth to the year 2051. For additional information on the project, please review the Special Meeting of Council details below:
