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.

In your process you need to preserve and promote the use of the name Glen Williams in the mailing address of this community. While that seems to be a simple request, it is anything but. There are companies that supply and/or use databases containing incorrect community names thereby "renaming" communities when they send out their communications, primarily invoices. Most obvious and harmful participant is Google. Their information or databases are used by insurance agencies and other paperwork administrative based businesses. Basically they change the name of each community (Georgetown, Norval, Acton, Glen Williams, etc.) to Halton Hills. When regional government was foisted upon the unsuspecting citizens there was agreement that the individual identities and names of the small communities would be respected. This suggestion falls clearly within that mandate. While you can't change Google because they are too big and should be broken up, you can advise residents they can use Glen Williams in their home and business address and that choice will be respected by Town and Region. They should also be urged to insist other agencies respect that name as well, even if they erroneously say they can't change the address in their database. That is simply untrue. Same philosophy needs to apply to all individual communities - Georgetown, Acton, Limehouse, Norval, etc.

Regulatory resources assigned the Secondary Plan have the mandate and powers, reporting to a balance of local civic and provincially elected leaders.Several easily identifiable recent home rebuilds and new constructions were fumbled though lack of oversight and will provide a jarring reminder, for decades to come, of the long term impact of lax enforcement.
