Product details


Everything that was new is old again. In April 2018, the Building Better Communities and Conserving Watersheds Act, 2017 (Bill 139) made fundamental changes to the way land use planning applications and appeals were determined in Ontario. These changes were short lived. On September 3, 2019, the More Homes, More Choice Act, 2019 (Bill 108) came into effect and effectively undid much of what Bill 139 put into place.

In one single, index-tabbed, portable volume, Ontario Planning Legislation & Commentary, 2020 Edition offers expert commentary outlining key features of the latest legislative changes presented with both historical context and with citations to relevant case law from both the Courts and the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (formally the Ontario Municipal Board).
