Courtice Employment Lands and Major Transit Station Area Secondary Plan

Project description

The Municipality of Clarington has initiated a new secondary plan for the employment lands located in the south end of Courtice (north of Highway 401). Theses lands also include the future Courtice GO Station and the surrounding Major Transit Station Area.

The Courtice Employment Lands and Major Transit Station Area Secondary Plan will guide this area’s growth as it transforms into a major employment, mixed-use, and transportation hub for Courtice. One of the main drivers of this change will be the future GO train station and related transit-oriented development (TOD).

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 now underway. The provision of municipal services and the creation of the GO train station 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.

GO Train and Transportation hubs

In anticipation of the GO train extension, Clarington is developing a high-level vision for the transportation hubs around the future Courtice and Bowmanville GO stations. The Municipality wants to ensure that development around the future stations is adequately planned, so these areas are more than just train stations; they also become destinations.
