About the study

This work is part of the land use study and urban design concept plan for the York Road and Elizabeth Street area. The study area runs along York Road from Stevenson Street South—capturing part of Johnson Street—to Watson Parkway South and is bounded by the rail line to the north. The study area also includes the south side of York Road between Stevenson Street and Victoria Road.

The study will consider:

  • the existing buildings next to York Road, Victoria Road and Stevenson Street
  • the transition between residential and non-residential uses
  • appropriate land uses along the rail corridor
  • large-scale redevelopment and intensification opportunities
  • the possible addition of an employment area
  • the mixed business and service/commercial land use designations

Land use refers to the purpose the land serves, for example, residential, commercial, recreational or agricultural.
