Neighbourhood Plans

Neighbourhood Plans provide a guide for future development for small areas or neighbourhoods. A Neighbourhood Plan provides detailed information about land uses and polices that are relevant to that specific area. These plans include a land use map and policies to identify future land uses and direction on development

Neighbourhood Plans have been prepared for over 70 of the 137 neighbourhoods in the City of Hamilton. The plans first date back to the early 1970’s. Most of the areas where there is considerable potential for redevelopment have approved Neighbourhood Plans.

Neighbourhood Plans in Hamilton are endorsed by Council but not incorporated into the Official Plan. So, although development should conform to these plans they are mostly used as basic guidelines.

Neighbourhood Action Plans have been developed for several neighbourhoods.
