SvN prepared a Part II Plan for the last remaining major greenfields development site, and Concept Plans for associated major employment areas, located in northern Oshawa straddling the extension of Highway 407 to Highway 35/115. The purpose of the Part II Plan is to prepare detailed policies and land use designations to guide the future development of the Kedron Planning Area as a predominantly residential community. Concept Plans for the North Kedron and East Windfields Industrial Areas outline detailed future land uses for the industrial areas.
The Plan includes the preparation of optional and preferred plans for:
- a new urban community plan
- a Transportation Master Plan
- Environmental Management and Sub-Watershed Plan
- Servicing Strategy Report
- Urban Design + Sustainability Plan
- Fiscal Impact Analysis
- Urban Design Guidelines
- Class EA Documentation
SvN worked closely with a team of landowners and developers, following a comprehensive program of public engagement, which included community visioning and design workshops and open houses. This Plan was completed in conformance with Durham Regional Official Plan Amendment No. 128, which addressed the Provincial Growth Plan. Kedron is the first community in Oshawa to be planned and designed in full conformance with the Provincial Growth Plan.
