Courtice Employment Lands Secondary Plan


Project description

The Municipality of Clarington is initiating a new secondary plan for the employment lands located in the south end of Courtice. The Courtice Employment Lands (CEL) is a collection of properties that have all been designated in the Clarington Official Plan for various forms of employment use. This area is situated to take full advantage of the tremendous advances in technology and changes in industry that will shape employment patterns in the coming years. The proposed secondary plan will create a blueprint to guide how this area of Courtice will grow as it transforms into the major employment and innovation centre for Clarington and Durham Region.

At the centre of this area is the Courtice Transportation Hub. As a major transit station area this stop along the GO rail line will be the focal point for the greatest density within the Secondary Plan.

One of the historical constraints to developing land within the CEL has been the absence of sanitary sewers. The extension of a trunk sewer north from the Courtice Water Pollution Control Plant, along Trulls Road will soon remove that constraint. The estimated completion date for the construction of the sewer along Trulls Road to Bloor Street is 2019.

The CEL are expected to develop into a mixed-use and employment centre with a transportation hub at the core that offers regular, all-day GO Rail service to and from Courtice. 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.
