Development Area Studies
Automotive Commercial Uses
Existing automotive commercial uses in Georgetown are concentrated along Guelph Street and Mountainview Road North. The existing automotive dealerships are within two main land use designations in the Official Plan, which are the Corridor Commercial Area designation and the Georgetown Community Node - Secondary Commercial Sub-Area designation.
GTA West Transportation Corridor Protection
The Town of Halton Hills has initiated preparation of an Official Plan Amendment to implement policies to protect for the future location of transportation corridors in the Town of Halton Hills, which were identified in the Halton Peel Boundary Area Transportation Study, as well as the GTA West (Greater Toronto Area) Transportation Corridor Environmental Assessment (EA).
Norval Secondary Plan
The Town of Halton Hills has initiated a review of the Hamlet of Norval Secondary Plan. The Hamlet of Norval Secondary Plan was adopted by Town Council in 2001 and approved by the Region of Halton in 2003.
Premier Gateway Phase 1B Employment Area Secondary Plan Study
The Town, in conformity with the Halton Region Official Plan, had proposed through Town Official Plan Amendment 10 (OPA 10) to designate an additional 340 gross hectares (840 acres) of land for employment on the north side of Steeles Avenue.
Stand Alone Aggregate Related Uses Study
On April 2, 2012, Council approved the undertaking of a Stand Alone Aggregate Uses Study (Report No.: PDS-2012-0033, Resolution No.: 2012-0093) and passed an Interim Control By-law (By-law 2012-0032) to allow for the review and development of appropriate land use policies related to stand alone aggregate related uses including asphalt plants, concrete batching plants, and aggregate transfer stations in the Town.
The project is titled “Vision Georgetown: Leading today, shaping tomorrow.” The name reflects that the project is about an expansion to Georgetown and will be planned for full integration with Georgetown. It is also representative of the new vision for this community that is different from what has been developed in Halton Hills to date.
Zoning By-law Amendment - Downtown Parking Requirements
The parking provisions of the Comprehensive Zoning By-law currently apply when a new building or expansion to an existing building is proposed or when a new use in an existing building is proposed that has a higher parking requirement (for example a retail use changing to a restaurant use).
