Clair-Maltby Secondary Plan


Transform. Connect. Community

The Clair-Maltby Secondary Plan has been approved by the Ontario Land Tribunal and is in effect as of March 6, 2024.

Clair-Maltby Secondary Plan

Clair-Maltby will be a vibrant, urban community that is integrated with Guelph’s southern neighbourhoods, as well as having strong connections to Downtown, employment areas and the rest of the City.

The Natural Heritage System and the Paris Moraine provide the framework for the balanced development of interconnected and sustainable neighbourhoods. This area will be primarily residential in character with a full range and mix of housing types and a variety of other uses that meet the needs of all residents. A system of parks, open spaces and trails will be interwoven throughout to provide opportunities for active and passive recreation.
