Neighbourhoods 17, 20 and 21 are provincially owned lands in the Seaton area in north Pickering. Neighbourhood Plans were required by the City in support of an Official Plan Amendment prior to submission of draft plans of subdivision for these lands.
In accordance with the Central Pickering Development Plan (prepared by our firm in 2006), we prepared the Neighbourhood Plans for Neighbourhoods 17, 20 and 21, which were prepared include natural heritage, residential, mixed use and employment lands. Our team has worked concurrently to prepare Draft Plans of Subdivision for the provincial lands in all six Seaton neighbourhoods.
We led a team of sub-consultants to successfully complete the project. Sub-consultants services included: site servicing and stormwater, transportation, natural heritage, market analysis, employment lands analysis, landscape design and urbanism, sustainable design, cultural heritage and retail market analysis.
We submitted the draft Neighbourhood Plan applications for Neighbourhoods 17, 20 and N21 to the City in March 2011. A statutory public meeting was held in June. The Neighbourhood Plans were approved by the Ontario Municipal Board in March 2013.
