    The proposed Official Plan Amendment (OPA 37) is exempt from approval by the Regional Municipality of York. The decision of the Newmarket Council is final if a Notice of Appeal is not received on or before the last day for filing a Notice of Appeal.

    An appeal to the Ontario Land Tribunal (OLT) in respect to Council's decision of the Official Plan Amendment 37 (OPA 37) be made by filing a Notice of Appeal with the Clerk of the Town of Newmarket no later than 4:30 p.m. on the January 2, 2024. A copy of an appeal form is available at

A notice of appeal may not be filed by an unincorporated association or group. However, a notice of appeal may be filed in the name of an individual who is a member of the association or the group on its behalf.

    No person or public body shall be added as a party to the hearing of the appeal unless, before the plan was adopted, the person or public body made oral submissions at a public meeting or written submissions to the council or, in the opinion of the Ontario Land Tribunal, there are reasonable grounds to add the person or public body as a party.
