Brooklin Secondary Plan and Transportation Master Plan Studies
It's your Brooklin
The Town, together with MetroQuest, uses an online, public engagement tool to seek input on the Brooklin Study.
The recent survey regarding the Land Use and Transportation Options is now closed.
The findings of the survey will be outlined in an upcoming staff report.
The Town of Whitby is undertaking integrated and comprehensive studies for the Brooklin area to determine land use planning and transportation needs for future growth in and around the existing community of Brooklin. The study will result in a comprehensive Secondary Plan and Transportation Master Plan for the Brooklin area.
The Secondary Plan will address the land use designations for the urban expansion areas north and west of Brooklin, the industrial lands adjacent to the future Highway 407 and the lands in the vicinity of the Conlin Road/Anderson Street intersection, as well as an update to the existing Brooklin Community Secondary Plan.
The Transportation Master Plan (TMP) for the Brooklin area will determine transportation infrastructure and mobility requirements. The Brooklin Transportation Master Plan will be conducted in accordance with the Municipal Engineers Association Class Environmental Assessment (EA) process. The work completed to date for Northwest Brooklin Class EA, the purpose of which is to address concerns regarding Highway 7/12 as it passes through Downtown Brooklin and gaining care and control of Baldwin Street as it passes through Brooklin, will be incorporated into the TMP.
The preparation of a comprehensive Secondary Plan and Transportation Master Plan for the Brooklin Area, through a joint Planning Act and EA process, will enable the Town to guide and manage the growth of future urban areas in an integrated and balanced manner and provide the foundation for the creation of a healthy, complete and sustainable community.
The study will involve an extensive public consultation process which will integrate the background study, consultation and reporting requirements for both the Secondary Plan and the Transportation Master Plan.
