The Town of Whitby is undertaking a study to help guide and determine permitted future development in Whitby’s mature neighbourhoods - and we want to hear from you.

Through this study, the Town will be:

  • creating an inventory and describing the character of certain mature residential neighbourhoods in the study area south of Taunton Road (see map);
  • identifying infill and intensification trends and pressures affecting mature neighbourhoods;
  • identifying options for managing these changes; and,
  • recommending revised Official Plan policies, zoning provisions and urban design guidelines to manage redevelopment in mature neighbourhoods in the study area.

Have Your Say

Residents are invited to learn more and provide comments to be considered as part of this study between now and Thursday, August 5. Here’s how:

The review will require extensive community and stakeholder engagement throughout the study process, in accordance with the Planning Act and as directed by Council. Future engagement sessions will be hosted as the project progresses.
