New Report – Policy
Obstacles to Brownfield Redevelopment in Ontario
Despite recent legislative and regulatory reforms to encourage redevelopment of brownfield sites in Ontario, a number of policy obstacles remain. CIELAP's new report Policy Obstacles to Brownfield Redevelopment in Ontario, authored by CIELAP intern Natalie Antonowicz, identifies and discusses six of these common concerns:
• liability and financing;
• municipal election structures;
• perverse subsidies and tax barriers;
• ownership constraints;
• land-use planning limitations; and
• leapfrogging to regions outside the GTA.
The report also compares Ontario's policy framework to those of the United States, United Kingdom and the province of Québec to explore strategies that have been adopted by other jurisdictions. The report makes several recommendations for Ontario to consider implementing to ensure that more of its brownfields are redeveloped.
