Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

A block plan study is taking place for an area in the northwest corner of Waterloo, near the corner of Erbsville and Wideman roads. A block plan study will identify how the area may grow and develop. The study will review growth and development options and provide policies for transportation, environmental protection and managing growth. This study project includes a plan that:

  • ensures important environmental features are protected;
  • outlines the general structure and types of residential units that will be developed;
  • ensures development is compact, efficient and meets local, regional and provincial policy;
  • ensures development is appropriately integrated and compatible with adjacent neighbourhoods; and
  • promotes a form of development that encourages walking, cycling and provides appropriate opportunities for trails and appreciation of nature.

As background to the block plan, an environmental study was completed. It confirmed natural features and functions, identified areas to be protected and recommended development setbacks and mitigation measures. The study was endorsed by council in June 2018.
