We're creating a new Niagara Official Plan. Learn about the purpose, components and studies.
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.
To request information in a different format, contact us.
The Regional Plan is amended from time to time to update policies and mapping, and to facilitate individual development applications.
Visit the Regional Official Plan Amendments page to see a list of recent and ongoing amendments to the plan.
