Niagara Region Aggregate Policies

November 27, 2017 at 12:15 PM

In 2014 Niagara Region initiated Phase 1 of a project to update the Region’s Official Plan policies for aggregate resources. Phase 1 culminated with the completion of the “State of Aggregates Resources in Niagara Region – Background Report” which was endorsed by Regional Council in January 2016. 

As part of the Phase 1 work program a Technical Advisory Group (TAG) was formed to provide input and to bring the perspectives of the organizations they represented. The Region is preparing to initiate Phase 2 of the work program which will be the Official Plan policy development, and will again use a TAG to review material and provide input.

OSSGA has been invited to participate.
