Completion of Water and Wastewater Area Servicing Plan for the Premier Gateway Phase 1B Employment Area
Halton Region initiated the Water and Wastewater Area Servicing Plan (ASP) for the Premier Gateway Phase 1B Employment Area in Halton Hills in 2017 to identify and evaluate water and wastewater servicing alternatives and recommend a servicing solution. The Water and Wastewater ASP will support the Premier Gateway Employment Area (PGEA) in Halton Hills, which is designated as an urban area, a natural heritage system as well as an Employment Area in the Region’s Official Plan. A copy of the Final Area Servicing Plan is now available for download here: Phase 1B Final ASP – June 2019
The PGEA will serve as a key employment growth area including industrial, office, commercial and institutional services. The completion of this Water and Wastewater ASP for the Premier Gateway Employment Area Phase 1B in Halton Hills is a critical step in the development of a key employment area by the Region and the Town of Halton Hills.
The key objectives of this Water and Wastewater Area Servicing Plan are to:
Develop a comprehensive servicing strategy to meet the requirements of the Secondary Plan Area that can cost-effectively be constructed.
Provide a defensible framework and implementation plan for servicing of the Secondary Plan Area.
Provide justification and recommendations for timing and phasing of new Regional and local infrastructure.
Build on previous studies and create a forward-looking document to support Halton Hills that aligns with infrastructure planning across the Region.

What is the purpose of the Secondary Plan?
The Study is being carried out in accordance with the requirements of the Planning Act. Transportation and water and wastewater servicing master plans and a scoped Subwatershed Study, which are components of the Secondary Plan are being carried out in accordance with the requirements of Phases 1 and 2 of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process, which is an approved process under the Environmental Assessment Act.
In March 2015, Council approved the retention of a project consulting team led by Macaulay Shiomi Howson Ltd. in association with AMEC Foster Wheeler, Brook McIlroy and other sub-consultants to complete the project (see report PDS-2015-0021 below).
Community consultation is a key part of the preparation of the Secondary Plan, and the related transportation, servicing and scoped subwatershed master plans and studies. Public information sessions were held throughout the study with the initial session taking place in October 2015.
