The Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe should be maintained as a provincial plan under the Places to Grow Act, 2005.
The proposed Provincial Policy Statement simply abandons virtually all the content and key goals, objectives and vision of the Growth Plan and in no way replicates the regional planning framework provided by the Growth Plan.
To address concerns of duplication and clarity, any Provincial Policy Statement (PPS) policies not currently covered by the Growth Plan – which covers the vast majority of them – should be incorporated into the Growth Plan and the PPS no longer apply to the Greater Golden Horseshoe. Further streamlining can be readily achieved by combining the other provincial plans covering the geography of the Greater Golden Horseshoe into a single provincial plan – a relatively straightforward exercise given the proposed repeal of the Parkway Belt West Plan and the Central Pickering Community Plan.
