Notes:
-Insufficient detail was available to delineate the Hamlets boundaries outside of the Oakridges Moraine Conservation Plan in the 2012 York Region (Upper Tier Plan), the lower-tier plan was therefore used where insufficient detail was provided
-Vaughan, Nobleton, Maple Lake Estates, Sutton and Pefferlaw’s boundaries were conceptual on the 2009 York Region Official Plan. While the settlements area boundaries of these communities varies between the 2009 plan and the 2012 plan it was assumed that no boundary expansion occurred. The differences in the mapping was attributed a refinement… and that the boundary simply changed from a conceptual boundary to a more precise boundary.
-Hamlet of Eversley was not mapped as it is not identified in any official plan documents
