Regional Official Plan (ROP) Documents


The Regional Official Plan (ROP) is Halton’s guiding document for land use planning. It contains the goals, objectives, and policies that manage growth and direct physical change and its effects on the social, economic and natural environment of the Region.

The ROP is reviewed periodically to ensure that it remains responsive to Halton’s needs and the vision of Regional Council. The last review – called Sustainable Halton – was undertaken to update the Halton Region Official Plan [2006]. It culminated on December 16, 2009 with Regional Council unanimously adopting Regional Official Plan Amendment No. 38 (ROPA 38). In 2011, the Province modified and approved ROPA 38. This decision was subsequently appealed in its entirety to the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB). The OMB hearing process to address the appeals began in mid-2012 and concluded in 2017 (with the exception of certain site-specific appeals).

A new Office Consolidation of the Regional Official Plan dated June 19, 2018 has been prepared to show the policies currently in force and effect for Halton Region. A copy of the Regional Official Plan – June 19, 2018 Office Consolidation is available below:
