On March 24th Caledon Council received a presentation regarding the Town of Caledon Intensification Strategy. This work, being conducted by MBTW Group, is being conducted in 4 phases:

  1. Background Research: Review and assess background information such as Official Plans, policies, Zoning By-law, reports, trends in development, building typology, etc. and generate a vacant land inventory
  2. Analysis of data: Develop criteria to evaluate potential sites for intensification; and create an illustrative public information package
  3. Identify and evaluate: Look at opportunities and challenges to prioritize potential sites for intensification; prepare urban design guidelines relating to each intensification type
  4. Policy Formulation: Develop policies for the Official Plan and Zoning By-law as well as a process to monitor intensification into the future

  • At the recent Stakeholder Advisory Group consultation for the Bolton SPA i.e. the current provincially mandated review of the flood plain’s defined boundaries and planning provisions, we debated just how realistic some of the intensification figures presented to Council for the old village area of Bolton (mush of which is in the flood plain) were, given the probable SPA plan the TRCA and provincial ministries will likely accept. We should not expect significant building densification in the high risk old town areas, although one or two new flood-proofed high rise residential condos could be approved.
