Town of East Gwillimbury Green Lane Secondary Plan
SGL was retained by the Town of East Gwillimbury to develop land use options and a policy framework for the Green Lane Secondary Plan area.
Situated along the southern border of East Gwillimbury, the Green Lane Secondary Plan was developed to accommodate growth to 2031. The Plan’s approximately 600 hectares is envisioned as a gateway and focal point for the Town, developed as an urban, mixed-use community with mixed use nodes along Yonge Street and at the 2nd Concession go Station. The Secondary Plan process was undertaken concurrently with a Master Environmental Servicing Plan (MESP) process lead by TMIG. Our study teams worked collaboratively throughout the process to deliver a Secondary Plan and MESP. Based on the extensive public outreach, the Green Lane Secondary Plan is set to deliver a sustainable, pedestrian friendly neighbourhood. Key aspects are two mixed use nodes, pedestrian oriented retail areas, office priority areas, and mixed-use and office requirements in phased development of the mixed-use nodes. The Secondary Plan, adopted by Council in 2018, plans for a mixed-use community of approximately 10,000 units.
