Proposed Plan of Subdivision

The County of Prince Edward has received an application for the draft approval of a Plan of Subdivision (File No. 13-T-19-502) and a Plan of Condominium (13T-19-503) in the Picton-Hallowell Urban Area. The subdivision application proposes to develop the subject lands located at 65, 71, 77, 95, & 97 Bridge Street. Click here to view the key map for the Proposed Plan of Subdivision (PDF 881 KB). 

Background

The effect of the zoning amendment will be to facilitate the development of a residential subdivision to be serviced by private sanitary and storm sewers and private water facilities and is to be accessed by Bridge Street.

The proposed development, which also includes 106 Bridge Street, will consist of a phased development of a mixed-use, master planned community containing 17 single-detached dwellings, four semi-detached dwellings, 16 townhouses, and five mid-rise buildings, as well as two mixed-use buildings, and two new park open spaces. The development will also feature a private condominium road, which will be owned and maintained by the condominium corporation. At full build-out, the proposed development will contain a total of 303 residential units.

Have Your Say

The Planning Public Committee of the County of Prince Edward will hold a public meeting on Thursday, August 29 at 7 pm in the Council Chambers at Shire Hall (332 Picton Main Street, Picton) to consider a proposed Plan of Subdivision under Section 51 of the Planning Act, and a Zoning By-law Amendment under Section 34 of the Planning Act.

Wellington Master Servicing Plan

The municipality is undertaking a master plan for water, sanitary, and stormwater services for the Wellington Urban Centre. The master plan will consider and evaluate alternatives and identify the preferred infrastructure upgrades for water treatment and distribution, sanitary treatment and collection, and stormwater management to accommodate immediate development and long-term growth opportunities to full ‘build out’ to the urban boundary, as per the Wellington Urban Centre Secondary Plan.

Project Status

This study is being completed in accordance with a ‘Schedule B’ Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA), as outlined by the Municipal Engineers Association. To date, the existing servicing needs have been reviewed and forecasted demands have been identified.

Alternative solutions will be analyzed and evaluated based on the following criteria:

  • Technical and operational impacts
  • Financial impacts
  • Social impacts
  • Archaeological/cultural impacts
  • Natural environment impacts

Have Your Say: The municipality hosted a public information centre (PIC) to provide more information about the process, existing issues that need to be addressed, findings to date, a list of alternatives to address the issues, and the next steps.

View the panels that were on display at the public information centre.

If you were unable to attend the meeting, you can still provide your comments. Download the Wellington Master Servicing Plan comment sheet. The deadline for submissions is August 31, 2019.   

For further information relating to this project, you can contact Rika Law, Project Manager with R.V. Anderson Associates Limited, by email or call 416.497.8600 extension 1209.

New Connecting Road — Highway 33 to Talbot Street

The County of Prince Edward has completed a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment for the construction of part of a new connecting road (Street A), Highway 33 (Loyalist Parkway) to Talbot Street, Picton (see Appendix 8 Location Map below). The need for construction of the new road is driven by the demand of development, specifically the adjacent commercial and residential developments to the north, east, and west. 

The project was planned in accordance with the latest edition of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Manual issued by the Municipal Engineers Association. The Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process applies to municipal infrastructure projects including roads. This project is being planned as a Schedule ‘B’ undertaking. 

As part of the study, alternative solutions such as “do nothing” and various urban road cross-sections were developed and assessed. The alternative solutions were assessed for potential impacts to the natural, cultural, social, and economic environments. 

Based on the environmental assessment study, the preferred approach for Street A/New Road will be a four-lane cross-section as it splits the proposed west and east commercial blocks owned by Picton Properties Inc. and will have two northbound lanes and three southbound lanes at the intersection. The three southbound lanes will include a dedicated left turn lane, through lane and right turn lane. The north leg of the intersection also includes a raised median to restrict northbound traffic from turning left into the west commercial block’s most southerly entrance. The same median also restricts movement from the west block’s most southern entrance to a Right In-Right Out movement only. North of the proposed commercial development, Street A/New Road drops from a four-lane cross-section to a two-lane cross-section as it enters the proposed residential subdivision.

The environmental assessment for this Schedule B project is documented in a Project File Report, which is now available for review.
