Liftlock Secondary Plan

The City is currently preparing a Secondary Land Use Plan to guide the future development of the Liftlock Planning Area. The Liftlock Planning Area was annexed in 1998 and 2008 from the Township of Otonabee-South Monaghan and the former Township of Otonabee for the purpose of accommodating long-term residential growth. The area is approximately 180 hectares (445 acres) and is bound by Parkhill Road to the north, Television Road to the east, the Canadian Pacific Railway track to the south, and the Trent Canal 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.
