Development applications up in York Region

high rise construction

Over the past five years there has been an increase in development applications in York Region, as outlined in York Region’s 2017 Development Activity Summary.

Today, 60 per cent of the Region’s housing mix consists of semi-detached, townhouse and apartment units with fewer applications for single-detached homes.

In 2017 a total of 283 applications were reviewed and responded to by Regional staff including:

  • 40 Official Plan Amendment (OPA) applications
  • 67 subdivision or condominium application conditionally approved
  • An additional 60 subdivision or condominium applications cleared for construction
  • 70 site plan application approvals
  • 46 engineering approvals

The development charges associated with these applications directly supports growing our Regional transit system, building road and transit system improvements, and maintaining current transportation assets to provide travellers with the most efficient transportation network.
