Frequently Asked Questions

What's an Official Plan?

It’s the overarching plan that helps manage how Brampton grows and develops. It guides the location and type of housing, industry, offices and shops, as well as the infrastructure needed to support a growing city – including streets, parks, transit, schools and recreational facilities.

Why are we undertaking this project?

Our Official Plan is a legal document that must conform to, and be consistent with, provincial and regional plans. We’re required to review and update it every five years to ensure it still meets the community’s needs. This update will provide the policy framework needed to make our Brampton 2040 Vision a reality.

Keep an eye on this page over the coming months to learn more about the review and how you can get involved. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Our Vision is the long-term goal for our city.
