Carnegie Secondary Land Use Plan

The City is currently preparing a Secondary Land Use Plan to guide the future development of the Carnegie Planning Area. The Carnegie Planning Area was annexed in 1998 from the former Township of Smith for the purpose of accommodating long-term residential growth. The area is approximately 135 hectares (330 acres) in size and is bound by the City limit and a Hydro One electrical transmission corridor to the north, University Heights Park and neighbourhood to the east, Water Street and Cumberland Avenue to the south and Hilliard Street to the west.

A Secondary Land Use Plan contains policies and mapping for specific areas identified within an Official Plan as requiring more detailed direction on certain issues (e.g. land use, community design, natural heritage, servicing, transportation) that are either inadequately addressed in the Official Plan or are at variance with the Official Plan.

Secondary Plans provide a framework for guiding development in a specific area. They typically include a land use plan and policy statements that are adopted by Official Plan Amendment into the Official Plan. Once a Secondary Land Use Plan is adopted, any new development within the area covered by the Plan must conform to the policies and principles established in the Plan.
