On the Agenda

Aimed at both seasoned and first-term councillors, the land-use planning module of AMO’s municipal councillor training program is designed to build upon the Association’s on-line primer on planning.  This three-hour workshop is presented back to back with As a Member of Council What You Need to Know.  It is also available as a stand-alone educational session. 

The workshop will reinforce the central role that municipalities play in implementing and managing the land use policy framework in Ontario.  It will include a review of the relevant elements of the Ontario Planning Act as well as a run-down of the key planning tools and how they are applied in the municipal context.  The module will identify the nature and role of the Provincial Policy Statement as the overall roadmap for land use management in Ontario.  The program will also update participants on the conversion of the Ontario Municipal Board to the new Local Planning Appeal Tribunal and the implications of this new regime on how municipal councils take decisions on planning matters.
