Mississauga Official Plan guides how the City will grow and develop, as required by the Ontario Planning Act. The goals and policies of this Official Plan are intended to be achieved over 25 years, by 2031.
The Official Plan provides the basis for Mississauga’s land use and urban design, in line with the City’s Strategic Plan. Its policies address important parts of city-building that affect everyone that lives and works in Mississauga, including transportation, housing, culture and heritage, the environment, and the economy.
The Official Plan also sets standards for the review and approval of development applications in the City.
