Official Plan and Municipal Comprehensive Reviews

Official Plan and Municipal Comprehensive Reviews

Welcome to the Official Plan and Municipal Comprehensive Reviews. This is your portal for learning about, getting involved and sharing your thoughts on planning in Toronto. We all want Toronto to continue to be a great place to live, work, invest and play.

The Official Plan sets out the vision for where and how Toronto will grow to the year 2031. That's a fairly long time, so it is important to do regular "check-ups" to ensure that the Official Plan is working to fulfill its vision. This review is one of those checkups. We are also undertaking a Municipal Comprehensive Review that looks specifically at designated areas of employment in the Official Plan. Both Reviews are important, so connect with us and share your ideas on how we can plan for Toronto's future.

We invite you to get involved and be engaged. Together we can make Toronto better.

Public Consultation

Open Houses

As part of this review the City is holding open houses to listen to the views of Torontonians on draft changes to the Official Plan policies that address policies on Urban Design, the Environment, as well as our Neighbourhoods and Apartment Neighbourhoods. Come out and have your opinions and ideas heard.

The review of the Urban Design policies of the Official Plan will involve a discussion on what changes in direction should occur in the design of public spaces, development, and mid-rise buildings.

An Urban Design Forum will be held on Monday, November 3 at the University of Toronto, OISE Auditorium (Room G152) at 252 Bloor St. W. A panel of urban designers, including Urban Design staff from the City of Toronto, will be discussing urban design challenges and opportunities facing Toronto. Register to attend here:
