The Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) is independent arbitration body that provides a public forum for appeals on local land-use planning matters and it is an important part of the checks and balances that make our land-use planning process fair, transparent and accountable.
The GTA land development and home building industry is constantly innovating and looking for ways to meet housing demand and provide consumer with affordable housing options while still complying with provincially mandated Growth Plan density targets.
Every year, we recognize innovation and excellence in the land development and homebuilding industry through our annual BILD Awards program. In April we will present 50 awards to members who are raising the bar in the marketing, designing, planning and building of communities across the GTA.
The GTA has experienced considerable growth in recent years and with it we’ve seen a huge increase in traffic congestion. The roads that move people and goods across the GTA haven’t been able to keep up with the increase of vehicles using them.
Outdated zoning bylaws in municipalities across the GTA are contributing to our worsening housing supply shortage, further eroding choice for new home buyers and ultimately adding to the price growth of new homes.
