O. Reg. 362/20

On July 10, 2020, the Minister issued a Ministerial Zoning Order (O. Reg. 362/20) for the lands within the Mayfield West Phase 2, Stage 2 Secondary Plan Area.

Proposed Changes

The Town has received notice from the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing of a proposed amendment to O. Reg. 362/20 to:

a) Expand the lands that the MZO applies to, to include lands on the west side of McLaughlin Road, south of Old School Road, as well as lands between McLaughlin Road and Hurontario Street, south of Old School Road (totaling approximately 180 hectares); and,

b) Include additional text to reflect the zones, uses and standards proposed through the amendment.

Ultimately, the amended MZO would permit the development of residential and commercial uses (including public infrastructure such as stormwater management pond) and recognize environmental lands. The proposed amendment, as received for comment, proposes that lands within the Greenbelt Plan be included in the MZO.


On July 15, 2022, the Town received an Official Plan Amendment application for the subject lands from Malone Given Parsons on behalf of Brookvalley Project Management. On February 21, 2023, staff brought forward a report to Council recommending refusal of the application as it was incomplete and premature. Council referred the matter back to staff until such time that the Growth Management and Phasing Plan was complete.

The proposed Official Plan Amendment has not yet been brought back to Council for consideration pending completion of the Growth Management and Phasing Plan. It is anticipated that both the Growth Management and Phasing Plan and the report on the proposed Official Plan Amendment be brought forward in Q3/Q4 of 2023.
