Building a healthy & liveable city in a post-OMB world

post omb world.jpg

On April 3, 2018, the new replacement for the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB), the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT), will begin hearing appeals of new zoning by-law and official plan amendments. In this brave new world of municipal land use planning, the policies of the city’s official plan are expected to be even more crucial to follow if the city is to defend itself at the new tribunal. What considerations have traditionally been left out of the city planning process that should now be raised? And if the city’s goal is to build healthy, inclusive and complete communities, does Toronto have the right policies it needs
