The Project

The City of Guelph has initiated the Clair-Maltby Secondary Plan and Master Environmental Servicing Plan (MESP) Study to plan the last unplanned greenfield area of the City. The study area is approximately 520 hectares and is generally located between Clair Road and Maltby Road in the southeast corner of Guelph.

Through the Secondary Plan, a vision for a complete and healthy community will be created including:

  • an integrated mix of land uses (residential, employment and commercial);
  • appropriate building heights, densities and built form to contribute to a vibrant community of neighbourhoods;
  • the preservation of environmental features and functions;
  • parks and open space;
  • an integrated transportation network to promote transit, walking and cycling; and
  • servicing and infrastructure (e.g. watermains, sanitary sewers, stormwater management).

The Process

The MESP will be carried out in accordance with the Master Plan (Approach #1) requirements of the Municipal Engineers Association Class Environmental Assessment (EA) process (Section A.2.7 of the Class EA document- October 2000, as amended in 2007 and 2011) which is an approved process under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act. This process will include Phases 1 and 2 of the Class EA process to identify a series of related projects/studies necessary to support urban development of this area. In addition this study will be integrated with the Planning Act as outlined in Section A.2.9 of the Municipal Class EA process.

The MESP will provide direction on municipal water/wastewater servicing, stormwater management and mobility.
