Southwest Courtice Secondary Plan

Project description

The Southwest Courtice Secondary Plan Update creates a blueprint to guide the creation of a walkable neighbourhood with new homes, a school and parkland. The Plan creates greater connectivity throughout south Courtice with the addition of new roads (such as the extension of Townline Road South to the future GO Train station). The Plan also provides increased access to the existing neighbourhood to the north and to surrounding natural areas.

Notice of Study Commencement – June 18, 2019

The proposed new major roads to service the Southwest Courtice 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.
