Milton Education Village Secondary Plan

This web page is currently under construction.  Check back later for updated information.

(This web page refers to the Milton Education Village Secondary Plan. For information on the project, visit the Milton Education Village page.)

The Town of Milton and Halton Region have been involved in a strategy for managing Regional and local growth to the year 2031 known as Sustainable Halton. The Sustainable Halton process builds on the Halton Urban Structure Plan which plans for growth to 2021. 

In relation to the proposed growth, the Town is undertaking the preparation of a Secondary Plan and supporting studies for the Milton Education Village area, together with related Regional and Local Official Plan Amendments and a Development Permit By-law.

The Secondary Plan is also being undertaken in the context of servicing, transportation, parks and open space systems, natural heritage and sub-watershed/environmental background work which was identified through the recently updated Halton Region Transportation and Water/Wastewater Servicing Master Plans, in addition to the locally adopted Town of Milton Boyne Survey Secondary Plan.

The area referred to as the Boyne Survey Secondary Plan Area within the Town of Milton, is the third of three planned residential areas of growth, designated as such within the current Milton Urban Expansion Area boundary, being implemented as part of the Halton Urban Structure Plan (HUSP).

Study Area 

The Milton Education Village Secondary Plan Study Area is located west of Tremaine Road and the Boyne Survey (see Map).

The area is approximately 162 hectares (400 acres) in size and is bounded by the Niagara Escarpment Plan Area to the north, Tremaine Road to the east, Britannia Road to the south and the Greenbelt Plan Area to the west (a small portion of which is located in the Study Area).

Note: The series of technical background studies that will be completed as part of the secondary plan study and the study areas for the technical work in some cases will extend beyond the secondary plan study area outlined above.
