Due to continuing efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19 and to protect individuals, Town Hall will not be open to the public to attend Public Meetings until further notice. These meetings will be held electronically.

Meeting date: November 9, 2021 | Meeting start time: 7 p.m.

Bolton Expansion Area Context

Regional Official Plan Amendment 30 was approved to expand the Bolton settlement area in different locations. In order to provide a framework for making informed land use decisions in the Bolton area, the Town is developing documentation to inform and guide development in the expansion areas. ”The Principles and Framework Plan” is currently being drafted and will include public engagement and consultation at a future date. The proposed Official Plan Amendment application will need to consider this document.

Application Context and Revision

The Town of Caledon has received an application to amend the Town’s Official Plan.

As originally submitted, the application proposed to expand the Bolton settlement area to establish a mixed-use community on lands north of King Street near Humber Station Road and The Gore Road. The lands were located both within and outside of the 2031 settlement area boundary.

To reflect the approved settlement area boundary limits, the application has been revised, scoping the limits to only those lands within the 2031 settlement area boundary established by Regional Official Plan Amendment 30 which are also subject to a Minister’s Zoning Order (O. Reg. 171/21).

The proposed land use plan has been included in this notice and is available online at Bolton Option 3 Landowners Group. Although the plan has been scoped, to provide context for the larger area, conceptual plans and supporting material has also been included and is available online.

This public meeting is being held because once an application is deemed complete by the Town, the application is to be considered and a public meeting is held to obtain input and feedback. Although a Public Meeting is being held to consider the proposed application, a decision on the application will not be made at the Public Meeting.
