Provincial Approval of the Revised Downtown Brampton Special Policy Area

The City of Brampton’s Office of the Central Area would like to share some exciting news with you. Please find attached a letter providing information in regards to the provincial approval of the revised Downtown Brampton Special Policy Area. In 2014, the Province of Ontario’s Ministers of Natural Resources (MNR) and Municipal Affairs and Housing (MMAH) approved the City of Brampton’s revised strategy and planning policies for development within the floodplain of the downtown.


This significant milestone will help facilitate new investment in downtown Brampton by providing clarity around development permissions in the core.


Brampton is one of the first municipalities to receive provincial approval of modifications to its Special Policy Area (SPA) since the new provincial guidelines were released in 2009. Close cooperation and partnership between the City and the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) contributed to a technically sound, comprehensive and successful study.

  1. “THE FLOWER TOWN” no longer exists and the Flower City, as you suggest, is just a nice way of letting people know that you have destroyed everything from the Brampton of some years ago. Paint it whatever colour you want, but there is a huge number of the population that used to love Brampton, that now hate it. Congratulations.
