The Town of Caledon is responding to Bill 23 with immediate action items to address impacts of the Bill and position Caledon for success. The Town is also asking the Province to further consult with municipalities and Indigenous communities before all parts of the Bill come into effect.
Staff is reviewing these impacts in detail:
· Funding for new growth in Caledon.
· Changes to planning processes and heritage protections.
· Changes to planning laws and appeal matters.
· Impacts on natural environment and conservation.
Caledon’s Growth Targets
The Province has provided housing targets for 29 selected municipalities in Ontario. Caledon’s target is 13,000 new residential units by 2031. The province has requested that Caledon sign a ‘Housing Pledge’ committing to the new target by March 1, 2023. Staff will bring forward more information on the Housing Pledge in February.
