Current Status

The first regional planning cycle for this region is complete. The Regional Infrastructure Plan (RIP) for the region was published in March 2017. It is expected that the next planning cycle for this region be initiated in the next 3-5 years.

Regional Planning for the Niagara Region started with the Information Gathering on November 2015 and the Needs Assessment report was completed in April 2016. The Q4N Thermal Overload Local Plan report was completed in November 2016.

Consistent with the process established by the Planning Process Working Group the Regional Infrastructure Plan (RIP) is the last phase of the planning process. In view that no further regional coordination was required, the Local Plan and Needs Assessment report were deemed to form the RIP report for the Niagara Region and is accompanied by a letter to the working group.
