Provincial Policy Statement Five Year Review
on the  H2infO Queen's Park Watch
Posted 9/23/2002
From H2infO
The Government of Ontario is undertaking a review of its land use planning policies. These policies are contained in what is known as the Provincial Policy Statement. The goal of the review is to make sure that the province's land use planning policies are effectively protecting Ontario's interests and to determine whether any changes need to be made to the policies. The Provincial Policy Statement review will also help the government determine whether Ontario's land use planning policies are consistent with Smart Growth: the government's strategy for promoting and managing growth in ways that sustain a strong economy; build strong communities; and promote a healthy environment.
