Project description

The Municipality of Clarington is initiating a new secondary plan for the employment lands located in the south end of Courtice (north of Highway 401). The Courtice Employment Lands (CEL) are designated in the Clarington Official Plan for various forms of employment use. At the centre of this area is the Courtice Transportation Hub which will be the focal point for the greatest density within the Secondary Plan.

The proposed secondary plan will create a blueprint that will transform south Courtice into the major employment and innovation centre for Clarington and Durham Region.

The absence of sanitary sewers in south Courtice has prevented development from occurring before now. The construction of a new trunk sewer along Trulls Road to Bloor Street is underway. The provision of municipal services and the creation of a major transportation hub are expected to be the primary catalysts that will spark the growth of this underdeveloped area.

Notice of Study Commencement – June 18, 2019

The proposed new major roads to service the Courtice Employment Secondary Plan are subject to Schedule ‘C’ of the Municipal Class EA. The EA will proceed through the “Integrated Approach” with the Planning Act as outlined in Section A.2.9 of the Municipal Class EA Manual (Municipal Engineers Association, October 2000, as amended in 2007, 2011 and 2015), which is an approved process under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act.

The “Integrated Approach” recognizes the desirability of integrating and coordinating the planning and approval processes to satisfy the requirements of the Planning Act and Environmental Assessment Act.
