2014 Official Plan

The City of Markham 2014 Official Plan was adopted by Markham Council on December 10, 2013, and approved by York Region Council on June 12, 2014.

The Official Plan was appealed to the Ontario Land Tribunal in 2014 (Case No. PL140743), but the majority of the Plan is now in force. Partial Approval Orders were issued by the Tribunal on October 30, 2015, May 26, 2016, March 10, 2017, April 21, 2017 and November 24, 2017, with the last Order being updated by the Tribunal on April 9, 2018. (For the purposes of this web page the term Ontario Land Tribunal (OLT) also refers to the Ontario Municipal Board and Local Planning Appeal Tribunal, both of which have been superceded by the Ontario Land Tribunal.)

The City of Markham 1987 Official Plan remains in force for certain land use designations and policies that are still under appeal under the 2014 Official Plan, and for certain areas in the city that require more detailed planning in the form of secondary plans.

An office consolidation of the Markham 2014 Official Plan incorporating the Partial Approval Orders issued by the Ontario Land Tribunal is available through the links below.
