Policy Section

The Policy Section’s role is to set the long-term policy framework for Richmond Hill through the Town’s Official Plan. The Official Plan directs future land use changes and how land is used in Richmond Hill. This Section also undertakes projects on growth management and other planning policy issues. It reviews and provides recommendations on planning policies from senior levels of government and conducts research and analysis.

The Policy Section is also responsible for the preparation of secondary plans for individual communities and major zoning bylaws, as well as the undertaking of other studies focused on areas such as environmental, economic and housing land-use based policy. Also, the section conducts planning research and analysis of population, development trends, and the sustainability performance of new development projects.
