Policies and schedules (under appeal)

On October 23, 2003, the City of Hamilton adopted amendments to the Regional Official Plan (ROPA 14) and the Stoney Creek Official Plan (OPA 99) to expand the urban boundary in lower Stoney Creek to accommodate future growth.  The urban boundary expansion included the lands east of Fruitland Road to the Hamilton municipal boundary between Highway No. 8 and Barton Street, as well as lands north of Barton Street on the west side of Fifty Road and north of the CNR tracks. Two appeals were filed against the urban boundary expansion and, subsequently, in 2005, the Province’s Greenbelt Plan came into effect and removed approximately one third of the original urban boundary expansion area proposed for urban use.

In November 2005, the Ontario Municipal Board or OMB issued a decision on the appeals (OMB Decision/Order No. 1202), which approved the City and Province’s settlement to allow the lands outside the Greenbelt area to be designated “Urban” with a Special Policy Area. The Special Policy Area required a transportation study, water, wastewater and stormwater analysis, and an evaluation of the appropriateness of commercial development on lands located north of the CN Railway tracks and east and west of Fifty Road. Once these studies were complete, the City could proceed with comprehensive planning for the entire area, including a general land use concept for all the lands on the basis of housing density and mix, projected population, school requirements, commercial lands, and employment lands.  A second OMB Decision was issued on September 9, 2010, to permit urban uses on three parcels that were within the Province’s Greenbelt Plan (970 Barton Street, 1361 Barton Street, and 347 Fifty Road) and add them to Special Policy Area ‘F’. 

To implement the Secondary Planning process as directed by the OMB, the City began the process in 2007.
