Marysfield Neighbourhood Character Review Study

​As part of the Official Plan Review currently underway, the City of Brampton has initiated the Toronto Gore Density Policy Review to assess:

 
  • the existing established estate residential community with a focus on protecting community character; and
  • the undeveloped estate residential lands to determine if there is potential to introduce more urban densities on full urban services to this part of the City.
In conjunction with the Toronto Gore Density Review Study, the City initiated the Marysfield Neighbourhood Character Review (the “Marysfield Study”).  Initial findings of the Marysfield Study (completed by the City’s Consultant, SGL Planning & Design Inc.) indicate that consideration should be given to adding clearer policies in the Official Plan for new development, including severances, in order to protect the existing character of the Marysfield Neighbourhood, a mature estate residential community located in northeast Brampton. These initial findings have not been approved by Council.
 
 
At its February 7, 2018 meeting, Council enacted Interim Control By-law (ICBL) 15-2018 to protect the Marysfield Neighbourhood from new development and future severances until the Marysfield Study is finalized and Council has approved the appropriate planning amendments to the Official Plan and Zoning By-Law.
