Yesterday the Ministry of Municipal Affairs posted draft regulations that enact the transition from the Ontario Municipal Board to the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT). The proposed regulations cover: 

  • Transition rules for matters and proceedings that come to the Tribunal under the Planning Act;

  • Timelines for proceedings before the Tribunal under the Planning Act;

  • Time limits for submissions at oral hearings for major land use planning appeals before the Tribunal; and

  • The practices and procedures of the Tribunal in respect of major land use planning appeals.

According to the proposed regulations, appeals that are already before the OMB before Royal Assent of Bill 139 would continue to be overseen by the OMB, while appeals made after that date would be subject to the new rules and overseen by the LPAT. 

You can view the full regulations below. Comments can be submitted until January 21, 2018.
