Boyne Survey Secondary Plan
The Boyne Survey Secondary Plan Area is the third of Milton's three residential growth areas within the current Urban Expansion Area, being implemented as part of the Halton Urban Structure Plan (HUSP) to accommodate growth to the year 2021.
This Secondary Plan Area is planned to accommodate an additional 50,000 residents when fully developed.
Secondary Plan Area
The Boyne Survey Secondary Plan Area is located in the Milton Urban Expansion Area, south of the existing Bristol Survey and Sherwood Survey Secondary Plan Areas.
The area is approximately 930 hectares (2,300 acres) in size and is bounded by Louis St. Laurent Avenue to the north, James Snow Parkway to the east, Britannia Road to the south and Tremaine Road to the west.
|Regionally Approved Secondary Plan and Official Plan Amendment No. 40
On June 14, 2010, the Boyne Survey Secondary Plan was adopted by Council and forwarded to the Region of Halton for approval.
On June 18, 2013 modifications to the Boyne Survey Secondary Plan were endorsed by Council and forwarded to the Region of Halton; requesting that the Region issue a final Notice of Decision approving the Boyne Survey Secondary Plan with modifications.
The Notice of Decision was issued by the Region of Halton on September 6, 2013 ultimately approving the Boyne Survey Secondary Plan by way of a Regional approval letter.
The Regionally approved plan was subsequently appealed to the Ontario Municipal Board. On January 7, 2015, the Ontario Municipal Board issued an order approving the Boyne Survey Secondary Plan save and except for certain policies and mapping which continue to be under appeal on a site-specific basis.
In order to facilitate the implementation of the Secondary Plan, it was necessary that a final consolidated version of the plan be prepared, combining the June 18, 2013 Town modifications with the Regionally approved policies. In preparing the consolidated version, a number of minor typographical errors and omissions were identified. As a result, staff prepared Official Plan Amendment No. 40 (OPA 40) which is a housekeeping amendment which corrects these minor errors and omissions. OPA 40 also incorporated a new appendix, Appendix C.10.D, which is an updated Tertiary Plan for the Boyne Survey West (Phase 3A) lands.
On August 24, 2015, Town of Milton Council passed By-law No. 069-2015, which adopted Official Plan Amendment No. 40 under Section 17(23) of the Planning Act . Given no appeals were received, the by-law is now in full force and effect.
Copies of Official Plan Amendment No. 40 and the Boyne Survey Secondary Plan Consolidation are available here:
A series of technical background studies were required as a basis for the preparation of the Boyne Survey Secondary Plan. The studies listed below are now final and must be used when developing Subwatershed Impact Studies for the Boyne Survey Secondary Plan Area.
Restoration Framework: Stream Corridors and Natural Area Buffers for the Boyne and Derry Green Subwatersheds of Sixteen Mile and Indian Creeks
The Restoration Framework document was prepared to support new development of lands within the Boyne Survey and Derry Green Corporate Business Park Secondary Plan areas. The need for a subwatershed specific restoration approach was identified during the Subwatershed Update Study process, which culminated in the approval of the Boyne Survey and Derry Green Corporate Business Park Secondary Plans.
The goal of the Restoration Framework was to set specific standards when establishing the ecological features and functions of a connected regional and local Natural Heritage System within new developments. This will result in greater consistency in the restoration of naturalized areas within new developments.
The Restoration Framework addresses implementation of the Natural Heritage Systems for Boyne and Derry Green as recommended in the Sixteen Mile Creek Subwatershed Update Study and the Functional Stormwater and Environmental Management Strategies. It was developed in keeping with the Conservation Halton Landscaping and Tree Preservation Guidelines (CHLTPG) and incorporated into the secondary plans for the Boyne Survey and Derry Green Business Park.
Plans prepared by developers under the framework are subject to review by the Town of Milton and Conservation Halton, with results to be confirmed through the Subdivision Agreement.
