Southeast Georgetown Secondary Plan Public Open House (POH) Follow Up:




The Southeast Georgetown area was identified for future development and brought into the Urban Area in the Town of Halton Hills through the Regional Official Plan Amendment No. 38 and Halton Hills Official Plan Amendment (OPA) No. 10. The Town is required to prepare a Secondary Plan as part of the process and before any development can proceed.

Once completed, the Southeast Georgetown Secondary Plan will identify the most appropriate mix of land uses in the study area and incorporate best practices for community development while establishing boundaries and targets for the new community and population, including housing units and affordable housing and employment capacity targets.

The plan will align with provincial and regional plans while outlining concepts for transportation networks and water and wastewater servicing. It will ensure the environmental objectives outlined in the Town’s Official Plan are met and the Greenbelt and Regional Natural Heritage System are protected.

The identified Southeast Georgetown lands and study area is approximately 53 hectares (131 acres) in size and fronts onto No. 10 Sideroad and the area west of Winston Churchill Blvd and east of Tenth Line. The north end of the Study Area is bounded by Silver Creek.

The Secondary Plan development will be a community-integrated process, shaped by input from the public and key stakeholder.

    The Southeast Georgetown Secondary Plan is proposed to be mixed use, including low and medium density, a park and mixed uses (commercial and residential).

    Members from all school boards in Halton are members of the Technical Advisory Committee and will be providing input relating to facility needs as part of the Secondary Plan process.

    We look forward to your continued participation throughout this process.

    The Southeast Georgetown Secondary Plan is proposed to be mixed use, including low and medium density, a park and mixed uses. Halton Region is currently undertaking a separate Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (MCEA) Study for the Norval West Bypass from Highway 7 to 10 Side Road and 10 Side Road from Tenth Line to Adamson Street/Winston Churchill Boulevard in Halton Hills. The Norval West Bypass is part of an overall solution to improve travel in the community of Norval as identified in the Halton-Peel Boundary Area Transportation Study (HPBATS). The Secondary Plan area overlaps with the Norval West Bypass MCEA study area. This area can be seen on the Preliminary Preferred Land Use Plan that was presented at the Public Open House last September for the Southeast Georgetown Secondary Plan and found under the POH Information Sheet on this page. Further information on the Norval West Bypass MCEA Study, including information regarding the online Public Information Centre #2 which is ongoing from January 31st to February 28th, can be found on the Region’s website.

    We are currently in Phase 3 of the Secondary Plan process, where we are working towards a Preferred Land Use Concept to be endorsed by Council. This Preferred Land Use Concept can be viewed by clicking on the "POH Information Sheet" at the top of the page. On this plan you will see that there is low density and medium density residential proposed, as well as a park and a mixed use block. 

    We look forward to your continued participation throughout this process and will keep you informed of future public engagement opportunities.

    We value your comments and feedback and will take them in to consideration as we create the Secondary Plan. You are correct that hospitals are the responsibility of the province. Representatives from Halton Heathcare provided an in-camera (confidential) presentation to Council on September 18th, as is identified in the agenda for that Council Meeting. Halton Healthcare previously provided a letter to the Town during the Halton Region Official Plan review. You can find the letter in the attachments

    Staff understand that Halton Healthcare evaluate current and future population projections within their planning considerations, and that discussions regarding the future of Georgetown Hospital are ongoing.

    We look forward to your continued participation throughout this process and will keep you informed of future public engagement opportunities.

    Winston Churchill Boulevard is currently a shared Boundary Road between Halton Region and Peel Region. If there are any cost contributions this would be dealt with at the Regional level.

  • Share Does the town consult with other agencies (HDSB) prior to approving residential housing in the area? It seems that is not the case. When the South Georgetown community was built from Tenth Line to Barber Drive, did anyone think about increasing population and required resources. When you approve townhomes, semi and detached Single family homes, who do you think will purchase them ?? It would probably be families with young children. In my opinion, it is failure on regional authority now that young children from opposite side of town have to trek almost 4km away just to attend a public school. How will this new residential/small commercial area impact the traffic flow in this neighbourhood? Has the town checked crime index related to traffic collision in this part of town? Has there been an increase in accidents in town as it will directly impact the current insurance rates. on Facebook Share Does the town consult with other agencies (HDSB) prior to approving residential housing in the area?

    As part of the study process, a Transportation/Traffic Study will be prepared.  This study will review future planned road improvements and will consider and make recommendations of any additional improvements necessary to facilitate future development of the area. 

    The crime index, traffic collision rates and current insurance rates are not reviewed as part of the land use planning process.

  • Share I appreciate the efforts to plan for future development in the Southeast Georgetown area. However, I would like to raise a concern regarding the projected population growth and its potential impact on the development plans. According to recent global population trends, there is an expected decline in the world population, with projections indicating that around 30% of Canada's population will leave the workforce and pass away over the next several decades. It is crucial to consider this demographic shift in the planning process, as it may have significant implications for the long-term viability and sustainability of the proposed development. We need to push back on pressures from the federal government, which is pushing for intensification based on outdated and inaccurate population projections The Southeast Georgetown Secondary Plan should consider the changing demographics and incorporate updated and realistic population targets, including housing units, affordable housing, and employment capacity. This will help avoid overestimating the demand for the development and ensure that the plan is aligned with the community's actual needs. Furthermore, it is essential to incorporate best practices for community development, including transportation networks, water and wastewater servicing, and environmental conservation, while protecting the Greenbelt and Regional Natural Heritage System as outlined in the Town's Official Plan. I urge you to thoroughly evaluate the potential impacts of changing demographics on the proposed development and ensure that the Southeast Georgetown Secondary Plan is robust, flexible, and aligned with the current and projected demographic trends. It is crucial to consider the long-term sustainability of the development to benefit both current and future generations of residents in the community. on Facebook Share I appreciate the efforts to plan for future development in the Southeast Georgetown area.

    Southeast Georgetown was identified for future development and brought into the Town’s Urban Area through the Regional Official Plan Amendment No. 38 and Halton Hills Official Plan Amendment (OPA) No. 10.  As a result, The Town is currently undertaking a Secondary Plan before any development can proceed. The Town is required to meet Provincial housing targets which have been passed on to the Town via ROPA 38 and ROPA 39 and those targets are being considered as part of the process.

     The Secondary Plan development will be a community-integrated process, shaped by input from the public and key stakeholders. We are currently in Phase 3 of the process. This phase of the study will determine a preferred land use and detailed planning study, which will consider/evaluate a variety of housing types including low, medium and high-density housing, parks and commercial uses.

     As part of this phase several technical reports are undergoing review.

     We look forward to your continued participation throughout this process and will keep you informed of future public engagement opportunities.
