2014 Official Plan
Markham's new Official Plan was adopted by Council on December 10, 2013, and approved by York Region on June 12, 2014. The new Official Plan has been appealed to the Ontario Municipal Board and is not yet in force. Until an Ontario Municipal Board decision to approve all or part of the new Official Plan has been made, the current Official Plan (Revised 1987), as amended, will continue to remain in force.

Each modification to the text, map or appendix is referenced in red (e.g. YR Mod. 1).Red strikethrough text denotes deleted text and red underlined text denotes added text. Deferrals are referenced in red with yellow highlight ("Deferral 1").
The modifications and deferrals referenced in this office consolidation should be read in conjunction with the York Region Notice of Decision dated June 17, 2014 included at the front of the document.
