APPENDIX P Detailed Review of Official Plan Policies

Stormwater Management, Erosion and Sediment Policies and Criteria Niagara Region and Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority – DRAFT P1 APPENDIX P – REVIEW OF OFFICIAL PLANS RELATING TO STORMWATER MANAGEMENT 1.0 INTRODUCTION 1.1 Review of Current Practices A questionnaire was circulated to all municipalities within the Niagara Region and the NPCA watersheds as part of the first step in identifying current SWM practices. A sample questionnaire and summary of results can be found at the end of this section. The questionnaire results indicate that there is a wide variation within the municipalities as to whether current policies and formal guidelines are in place. They all follow current MOE Stormwater Management Guidelines (2003) for general direction while some have developed guidelines more specific to their area. SWM targets have been developed in some areas, primarily based upon subwatershed strategies. Technical design guidelines do not exist in all areas and some are being developed. The majority of the municipalities agree that there is a need for uniform SWM guidelines, but with allowance for specific site conditions. Not all municipalities have a formalized SWM maintenance program but see the need to have a consistent approach. Municipalities were also requested to forward copies of applicable and relevant guidelines for review in this study. SWM design standards and/or policies were obtained for seven of the municipalities. Other drainage policies and by-laws relating to SWM were also downloaded from websites where available. Appendix B summarizes all SWM policies, standards, and by-laws that were used to compare SWM practices for locales within and outside the Niagara Region and the NPCA watersheds. The literature review process undertaken is outlined below: Compare Practices in Other Jurisdictions and SWM Policy Trends – This review exercise helped to identify policy gaps and recommend policies that would benefit the municipalities within the Niagara Region and the NPCA watersheds. OPs, SWM policies and design standards were reviewed for other municipalities outside the study area to: Observe current trends and advances; and Identify policies and by-laws currently in use that would benefit municipalities within the study area; Identify SWM Policy Needs and Opportunities for Policy Improvements – Recommendations were made as to what policies would be appropriate for all municipalities region wide; Identify and Compare Alternatives for Changes to SWM Policies and Procedures – Policy options were proposed that worked off the strength of policies and procedures within the Niagara Region and the NPCA watersheds, and strengthening or enhancing with policies and procedures from the area; and Develop a recommended approach for SWM policies and procedures – The final step was to review with the committee policy and procedure options that would be implemented across the Niagara Region and the NPCA watersheds. Appendix C provides the table that was used to compare SWM design standards and policies for municipalities within the Niagara Region and the NPCA watersheds. The OPs available for each municipality were summarized in a table in order to make direct comparisons of policies relating both directly and indirectly to SWM. The table is located in Appendix D.
