Green Lane Corridor

The Green Lane West Secondary Plan was approved in 2001, permitting limited commercial and residential development in the southwest corner of Yonge Street and Green Lane, including the Harvest Hills subdivision.  The bulk of the Green Lane Corridor area has now been brought into the Town’s urban boundary.  The Town is currently preparing a Secondary Plan for the Green Lane Corridor which will determine detailed land uses for this area and implement the vision of the Town’s Official Plan.

Planning within the Green Lane area will be focused on a series of Centres and Corridors that will provide for medium and higher density development and accommodate a mix of uses. This area will be planned to accommodate new housing and population-related employment in an attractive mixed use and transit-supportive built form that encourages pedestrian movement and active transportation.
