Old Lakeshore Road Neighbourhood Plan

**Please be advised this is NOT a Development Proposal**

 

Old Lakeshore Road Neighbourhood Plan is a project aimed to provide more detailed policies to guide development within the Old Lakeshore Road Neighbourhood in the area of Camperdown. The Old Lakeshore Road Neighbourhood Plan is now drafted and the Town is seeking feedback from Stakeholder.

 

Why do we need a Neighbourhood Plan?

The Town of The Blue Mountains Official Plan identifies a Special Study Area on Old Lakeshore Road. The lands within Special Study Area require further review and analysis is required prior to new development proceeding. See the Official Plan page for more information about the need for a Neighbourhood Plan https://www.thebluemountains.ca/official-plan.cfm

What is a Neighbourhood Plan?

While a Neighbourhood Plan isn’t a typical Land Use Planning document, it is intended to complement, not replace, the Town’s Official Plan. The Study Area lands are designated as Residential Recreational Area and Hazard Lands in the Town’s Official Plan.

The Official Plan already contains detailed policies for development of these lands through the land use categories and the development policies. However, given some of the unique characteristics of the Special Study Area, the Neighbourhood Plan is intended to be a further guide to direct development and redevelopment of the Special Study Area. The Neighbourhood Plan is designed in accordance with the Official Plan, and other Town policies and regulations that apply. The Neighbourhood Plan provides a vision for the neighbourhood and goals to achieve the vision.
