May 1, 2020 | News

Earlier this year, the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing announced that a new Provincial Policy Statement (PPS) will take effect on May 1, 2020.

Decisions of the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal on planning matters made after May 1, 2020 will be consistent with the new PPS. The PPS guides decision-making to manage growth and development, while protecting the environment, public health and safety.
