North Oakville Secondary Plans changes aired
20 February 2018
Public invited to give input on plans
Town council has taken another step toward taking control of the type of development permitted to occur in North Oakville.
Councillors voted during a planning and development council meeting Feb. 12 to receive comments from the public concerning amendments to the North Oakville East and West Secondary Plans.
Town staff said the Planning Act requires municipalities to review their official plans every five years and council directed that the review be done with the goal of refining the vision of the North Oakville plans.
Mayor says developing greenbelt won't cool housing market

Oakville mayor says developers are running a 'cartel economy' limiting housing supply
Oakville's Mayor Rob Burton says developing the greenbelt isn't the solution to Toronto's fiery housing market.
The greenbelt is the swath of protected wetlands, forests and farmland that runs around the GTHA, extending north to the Bruce Peninsula. It was created by Dalton McGuinty's Liberal Government in 2005 as a way to limit urban sprawl and preserve green space in the Golden Horseshoe.
Since then, the Ontario Real Estate Association, among others, has argued that as it stands, the greenbelt is limiting the supply of potential homes.
But Burton says it's a false claim.
