Official Plan Review
Official Plan Review
As Mississauga continues to evolve, so does our Official Plan. The City’s Official Plan provides policies that guide and direct the physical change of the city. They also help manage the effects this change has on Mississauga’s social, economic, cultural and natural environment.
We’re reviewing the existing Official Plan to ensure it reflects the changing needs, opportunities and aspirations of our city.

We all have a stake in the future of our city. Get involved and have your say!


Office Consolidation
The office consolidation of the Mississauga Official Plan is updated to include Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT) decisions and City Council approved Official Plan Amendments as of November 22, 2019. Appeals to the Plan are shown as follows:
  policies that have been appealed City-wide are noted with highlighting;
  policies appealed that are site specific are underlined in red; and
  policies requiring regional approval are underlined in green.
Until all the original appeals are resolved, both Mississauga Plan (2003) and Mississauga Official Plan will need to be referred to since they are both partially in effect. Once all matters have been decided, Mississauga Plan (2003) will no longer apply.
The office consolidation is prepared for the purpose of convenience only. For accurate reference, the original Plan as approved by the Region, Ontario Municipal Board decisions and amendments to the Plan should be consulted.
Post Consolidation Activity
The following list is a tracking sheet of all Mississauga Official Plan Amendments (MOPAs) and Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT) decisions that have occurred since the Mississauga Official Plan consolidation of November 22, 2019 (as posted Online). This list contains details of all the amendments that have been approved by Council since November 22, 2019 as well as appeal activity since this time period. Post office consolidation activity is summarized in the List of Unconsolidated Official Plan Amendments and LPAT Decisions.
