The PRS defines the future use of land, dividing it into broad zones and reservations. It requires local government town planning schemes to provide detailed plans for their respective parts of the region. These schemes must be consistent with the PRS.
The PRS uses a set of maps and a scheme text. The scheme text provides planning rules for zones and reservations, which are shown on the maps in their respective colours and patterns. Refer to the Peel Region Scheme - Scheme text which is amended from time to time.
This plan has been in operation since March 2003 and provides the legal basis for planning in the Peel region.
To plan for changing needs, the Peel Region Scheme map needs to be amended from time to time.
