A draft of the new Port Credit Local Area Plan will be delivered to the community for review on April
25 at Clarke Hall. City planning staff will be on hand to explain the draft plan and the
results of community consultations it includes. The policies included in the plan will protect
and enhance Port Credit as an urban waterfront village.
"The draft area plan recognizes the unique characteristics of Port Credit," said John
Calvert, Mississauga's director of Policy Planning. "The policies that are included in
this plan reflect both good planning, as well as the needs and desires of the many people we
spoke to in the community."
Local area plans have planning policies that address the needs of specific communities within
Mississauga. They build on the Mississauga Official Plan, the collection of planning policies that
apply to the entire city.
The draft area plan recognizes the need to protect and enhance the village character and the
waterfronts of Lake Ontario and the Credit River while providing more diverse transportation
options, parks and open spaces. Intensification will be focused in central Port Credit, along
Lakeshore Road and in brownfield sites while ensuring stable neighbourhoods are
The Mississauga Official Plan and all local area plans support the City's Strategic Plan, a
vision of Mississauga as a city of vibrant, connected communities.
