Growth Management
All Niagara Region projects

About the Project

Niagara is growing, and proper management of this growth will impact quality of life in the region. To manage future growth, we're creating a new Niagara Official Plan. The plan is a long-range, policy planning document to shape Niagara’s physical, economic and social development.

The new Niagara Official Plan will be informed by inter-related background studies relating to growth management, and rural and natural systems.

This project supports the Council Strategic Plan.
