In Newmarket's Urban Growth Centre, located along Yonge Street and Davis Drive, you can go directly to a Site Plan Application. 

Newmarket's Urban Growth Centre includes Southlake Regional Health Centre, the Davis Drive Regional Corridor and the Yonge Street Regional Corridor.  This five-kilometre stretch in York Region is forecasted to continue to grow into a vibrant urban community of 33,000 residents and include 32,000 jobs over the next few decades. 

The Urban Growth Centre is already home to bus rapid transit, a thriving technology-based and creative economy, brand new purpose-built rental, advanced communications (including broadband and fibre optics), rail connection (Go Train), Regional government administrative centre and a leading Health Care Centre. In addition, the area already has over 1,350 residential units moving through the application process.

You can be a part of this growth.  

The Urban Centres Secondary Plan is the leading planning document that promotes growth in the area. A wide mix of uses are permitted within the six defined character areas of the Urban Growth Centre.

Getting started is easy. Many areas in the Urban Centre have been pre-zoned and are ready for your Site Plan Application.

The area's re-urbanization has already begun:
