City holding public meetings on improving the Planning Process
The City of Toronto has scheduled a series of public consultation meetings to
improve the planning approval process for development applications.

"We want community members to be involved in the planning process earlier,"
said Councillor John Filion, Chair of the Sub-Committee of the Planning and
Transportation Committee to Review the City’s Planning Process. "Neighbourhood
residents need to be able to have a meaningful role in shaping development in
their areas."

The Sub-Committee has developed some draft proposals that are going to the
community and members of the development industry for comment.
