About the Project

As Niagara grows, we need to protect what's valuable and manage our resources in a sustainable way. That's why 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 rural and natural systems, and growth management.
