New Official Plan

Cover of Regional Official Plan

The Regional Official Plan is the long-range, community planning document used to guide the physical, economic and social development of Niagara.

Generally, it contains objectives, policies and mapping that implement the Region's approach to managing growth, growing the economy, protecting the natural environment, resources and agricultural land, and providing infrastructure. The Regional Official Plan must also implement provincial policies and plans.
