Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link


The Town of Halton Hills is reviewing and updating the Hamlet of Glen Williams Secondary Plan to reflect changes to provincial and regional policy documents. As part of this review, the current Design and Heritage Protection Guidelines for the Hamlet will be updated to incorporate best practices which are sensitive to the community context.

The review will be a community-integrated process that is shaped by input from the public and key stakeholders.

The updated Secondary Plan will:

  • Articulate the vision for the Hamlet of Glen Williams;
  • Define intended policy direction for residential, commercial, institutional, recreational and natural areas within the Hamlet;
  • Ensure that the natural, cultural and heritage character of the Hamlet is retained and enhanced.

Please see Background Information to view the current Secondary Plan and other documents.

If you or some one you know has any issues accessing the consultation material, please contact us directly by calling 905-873-2600 Ext. 2900. We will make arrangements to provide you with hard copies of the public engagement material and options for submitting your comments and questions to us.

    Hi Melissa. How do we ensure that the GWSP be recognized and is adhered to as the guidelines and standards for all future developments rather than the current status of it being only recognized as a "suggestion" whereby it carries no weight and is over written by provincial standards.

    Once the updated Glen Williams Secondary Plan is approved, all future development applications would be evaluated against the updated Secondary Plan. However, according to the Planning Act, property owners have the right to submit applications requesting to make changes to the in-effect policies. Any such application would be evaluated through the Development Review application process which includes a public consultation component and thorough review by Town staff and other agencies. Residents are encouraged to participate in the process and provide their comments and questions. For more information about the planning application process, please refer to the Province of Ontario’s Citizen’s Guide for land use planning: Plan Review and Approval Process.
