• Coordination can only be remedied by addressing the relationships of provincial policies and provincial plans in the central planning legislation, the Planning Act, and by integrating any required approvals in a single process related to the Official Plan approval process.
• FoNTRA recommends:

1) The relationships of policies under the PPS, Provincial Plans, and Official Plans should be clarified and prescribed in the Planning Act.
2) Conformity of Official Plans with policies under the PPS and any Provincial Plans should be established in a single review/approval process.
3) The Planning Act should be amended to require Official Plans to prescribe building intensities and population densities.
4) Amendments to Official Plans initiated by individuals (i.e. non-government) in between the mandatory 5-year reviews should be prohibited.
5) The PPS should provide direction for integrating the various planning elements such as land use, transportation, and economic development.
