The Tertiary Plan will provide direction on the possibilities of redevelopment along Old Main Street. The Plan will incorporate a detailed review and analysis of relevant background information, as well as a robust public and stakeholder consultation process.
Policies will be prepared to address all relevant matters with respect to land use, density, storm water management, low impact development, transportation and servicing infrastructure, open space and natural heritage. Additionally, the Plan will incorporate urban design policies which aim to reinforce the character of the Old Main Street neighbourhood. Such policies may address matters pertaining to building height and massing, building elements, garages and driveways, setbacks and landscaping, special features, and built heritage.
The Plan will form part of an amendment to the Town of Newmarket Official Plan, and will inform an implementing amendment to the Town of Newmarket Zoning By-law.
