City of Welland Official Plan

 

The new comprehensive Official Plan was adopted by the Council of The Corporation of the City of Welland on May 4, 2010, by By-law 2010-55, and approved, in part, with modifications and deferrals by Niagara Regional Council on September 15, 2011.  Within the appeal period, four appeals of a policy and site specific nature were received, and have been forwarded to the Ontario Municipal Board.  The components of the Plan under appeal are not in effect; however, the remainder of the Official Plan is in full force and effect as of October 21, 2011.

Welland's Official Plan defines the community’s vision for long-term growth and development of the City.  To support this vision, the Plan contains goals, objectives, and policies to guide growth and development, and promote a good quality of life for the citizens of Welland while considering important environmental, economic, cultural, and social factors.   The Official Plan is intended to be a long-term document with a 20 year horizon; however, it is generally viewed as a “living document” that may change as the City evolves and, therefore, the plan will be reviewed on a regular 5-year basis.
