Planning for Employment Lands and the employment opportunities that can be created on these lands, are important components of building sustainable and complete community. The Town is currently undertaking a Study to assess the current supply of employment land and identify whether or not the existing supply is appropriate and meets the needs of the its growing population.
The Growth Plan provides a policy framework that protects Employment Lands and aims to protect employment areas and support evolving economic activities to accommodate growth and economic prosperity in the Greater Golden Horseshoe. The Study takes into account the need to address population growth assumptions and scenarios for employment forecasting, especially with respect to population related employment. This analysis will provide critical input to the employment land component of the Region of Halton Official Plan Review exercise currently underway.
