Revised Draft New Official Plan Release
The City of Ottawa has had over 100,000 engagements with residents over more than 130 activities during each phase of the development of the New Official Plan. All feedback as been tracked and reviewed. After thorough consideration, City Planners have revised the draft New Official Plan to reflect some of the major themes and concerns.
In order to provide the most time for residents to review, sections of the revised New Official Plan will become available on this page as they are finalized. Please be sure to check back over the coming weeks for additional material.
The documents below have been left in their track-change format. This is to allow readers to clearly see where changes have been made and make it easier to review the large volume of information.
The 21 one-pagers on key themes found in the New Official Plan have also been updated and can be found here.
The City will be hosting a Public Open House later this summer. Details are being confirmed and residents are encouraged to stay tuned to the Engage Ottawa for more information.

Updates are continually being made to the Official Plan Sections since the first Sections were uploaded on July 26, 2021. The updates are to address technical or content issues being brought to the attention of Staff after the revised draft New Official Plan went live to the public. A summary of the Sections that have been updated since the live post, is below for full transparency:
|3.4 – Growth Management
||Edits made to the country lot subdivision swap policy to allow for a total area calculation threshold rather than a total lot threshold to be applied when swapping land to a new location.
|5.4 – Suburban Transect
||Edits made to the height policy to rectify a discrepancy in maximum permitted heights for corridors and hubs as well as consolidate height policy into one location, resulting in the deletion of two previous policies.
|220.127.116.11||Edit to address provincial concerns regarding consistency with the "no negative impact" test in the Provincial Policy Statement with respect to significant woodlands.
|6.2 - Special Districts||Remove Sub-Section 6.2.1 and Policy 1 altogether and adjust the What We Want To Achieve box accordingly. This policy was conflicting with Section 4.1.2(4). Added a new policy to the end of Sub-Section 6.2.1, new policy number 4 in an effort to retain content that would have otherwise been lost from the deletion of 6.2.3(1).
|6.6 – Special Districts
||Edits made to the policy reference numbers to ensure the new special district categories, that have been introduced, can be numerically referenced. This resulted in changes to the What We Want To Achieve Box as well.
|Section 13 - Definitions
||Remove the definition for ‘single loaded corridor’ due to the deletion of Sub-Section 6.2.3 which was the only reference to this term throughout the Plan.
