Bolton Residential Expansion Study

The Bolton Residential Expansion Study (BRES) was initiated to determine where to accommodate the 2031 population assigned projected for Bolton by the Region of Peel. The goal of the study was to:

  • Evaluate and select an area for residential development
  • Ensure the study fulfills the requirements of the Planning Act and all provincial directions
  • Provide the public with opportunities to provide input

Current status

The Region of Peel Council has approved a Region Official Plan Amendment for the Bolton Residential Area in an area that conflicts with the findings of the Town of Caledon report and Council approved-area for future settlement expansion.

As a result, the Town of Caledon, along with many others, has appealed the decision of Regional Council to the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal.

For more information on the appeal process, visit The Local Planning Tribunal case information – case number PL170058.
