Glendale Secondary Plan Update
All Niagara Region projects

About the project

Niagara Region and the Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake are working together to prepare an update to Niagara-on-the-Lake's Glendale Secondary Plan. The project will result in updated policies and mapping to align the existing secondary plan for the Glendale area with the Town and Regional Council endorsed Glendale Niagara District Plan.

A consulting team, led by the Planning Partnership has been retained to lead the secondary plan update. They will be supported by a range of technical experts.

The project will assess the land use concept/demonstration plan that was prepared as part of the Glendale Niagara District Plan through the completion of the following supporting technical studies:

  • Background and planning review
  • Transportation assessment
  • Infrastructure study
  • Natural heritage/subwatershed study
  • Commercial/employment lands study
  • Urban design guidelines study
  • Financial impact study

These technical studies will help refine the land use direction for Glendale and set a policy framework to achieve this.

Consultation with the public and stakeholders will also occur regularly over the course of the project, and we'll continue to engage those individuals that participated in the District Plan engagement process.

The final outcome of the secondary plan update will be an amendment to the Town’s Official Plan that will contain policies and guidelines for development and redevelopment in the area.

Project area

The project area includes all lands bounded by Queenston Road to the north, Concession 7 Road to the east, the Niagara Escarpment to the south and Homer Road to the west, and:

  • Outlet Collection at Niagara
  • Niagara College Campus
  • Existing residential development south of Glendale Avenue
  • Hospitality uses on both sides of the QEW providing convenient access from the highway for visitors
