Delegated Interest in Plan Review

Conservation Halton (CH) acts on behalf of the Province of Ontario by reviewing municipal policy documents and planning applications submitted under the Planning Act and providing input about whether or not these are consistent with the Ontario Provincial Policy Statement, 2014 – Section 3.0, Protecting Public Health and Safety.


Where inconsistencies are identified, CH provides comments and suggestions for modifications through the One Window Provincial Planning Service. This commenting responsibility was formally delegated through a Minister of Natural Resources delegation letter and accompanying Memorandum of Agreement co-signed in 2001 by Conservation Ontario, Ministry of Natural Resources and Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing.
