Lily Lake Secondary Plan

The City is currently preparing a Secondary Land Use Plan to guide the future development of the Lily Lake Planning Area. The Lily Lake Planning Area was annexed in 2008 from the former Township of Smith-Ennismore-Lakefield for the purpose of accommodating long-term residential growth. The area is approximately 198 hectares (489 acres) in size and is bound by the City limit to the west, Jackson Creek to the south, Lily Lake Road to the north, and Fairbairn Street to the east.

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.
