Draft Employment Land Conversion Policies and, Proposed Strategic Assessment of Vacant Employment Land

The City is undertaking the second phase of the Employment Lands Study as part of the ongoing Official Plan Review process.  On December 10, 2012, Council received the Draft Employment Lands Study Phase 2 (part one and part two).

An Official Plan Review directions report will be considered by the Development and Infrastructure Committee on January 14th, 2013.  The staff report (including Appendix A, Appendix B, Appendix C and Appendix D) presents draft employment land conversion policies supported in principle by staff, subject to consultation.  The staff report also presents for consideration the initiation of a process for a combined effort by the Burlington Economic Development Corporation and the Planning and Building Department to conduct an assessment of the vacant employment land inventory.

Dates for consultation related both to the Employment Lands Study Phase 2 Draft Report and the draft conversion policies dates will be released in the coming weeks.
