The Planning and Building Department, in co-operation with the Clarkson Village Stakeholders and Councillor Pat Mullin, undertook the Clarkson Village Study. The goal of the study was to develop a comprehensive vision for the revitalization of Clarkson Village and to promote, maintain and enhance a vibrant and pedestrian friendly 'main street' in Clarkson Village. The study established a vision with a long term strategy that should develop in an incremental manner over time. The vision will encourage and manage growth while focusing on both private and public resources to revitalize Clarkson Village.
On June 24, 2013, a Supplementary Report for the Lakeshore Road West - Clarkson Village Study was brought forward to the Planning and Development Committee (PDC who recommended approval of the proposed amendments to Mississauga Official Plan and Zoning By-law 0225-2007 in accordance with the January 24, 2012 Public Meeting Report (attached as Appendix S-1 of that report) with the exception that the maximum building height for lands within the Outer Core Area and on the south side of Lakeshore Road West within the Core Area be reduced from 6-storeys to 4-storeys; and that the maximum building height for lands on the north side of Lakeshore Road West within the Core Area be reduced from 4-storeys to 3-storeys.

A two day hearing before the OMB was held on November 23 and 24, 2015.

The appeals relating to various properties on the south side of Lakeshore Road West between 1672 and 1728 Lakeshore Road West represented by Mr. Zorbas were denied.
