On October 11, 2006, City Council adopted Official Plan Amendments OP93-270 and OP93-271 that revised the existing Bram West Secondary Plan.
The purpose of OP93-270/271 is to revise certain land use designations, road alignments and policies of Chapters 40(a) and 40(b) of the Bram West Secondary Plan in order to implement a revised land use plan and policies based on an enhanced public consultation process.
The City received eleven appeals to against the official plan amendments. The appeals are generally focused on the issues of financing, growth management, urban design and infrastructure matters, as well as land use and road alignments, in addition to the Corridor Protection Area west of Heritage Road. Many of these appellants have submitted appeals against the 2006 Official Plan.
To date, the OMB has partially approved OP93-270 for the lands east of Mississauga Road in the Bram West Secondary Plan. This was done by the approval of a new Chapter to the Bram West Secondary Plan known as 40(c).
The next phase of approval for Bram West is expected to be the lands between Mississauga Road and Heritage Road, also known as Sub-Area 40-3. These lands are undergoing block planning by the City and are expected to approved by the OMB as Chapter 40(d) in mid 2010.
Approvals for the balance of the Bram West Secondary Plan west of Heritage Road and south of Steeles Avenue are expected following the final disposition of the corridor protection related appeals by the OMB.
