City Info: Clair-Maltby Secondary Plan Proposed City-initiated Official Plan Amendment – GuelphToday

Sign In
The proposed secondary plan reflects the vision and directions we developed with the community over the past four years. We are now ready to amend Guelph’s Official Plan to include the proposed Clair-Maltby Secondary Plan. Join us for a statutory public meeting of Council:
September 22, 2021 6 p.m.
This is a remote City Council meeting that can be watched online at
Clair-Maltby lands
The study area is about 414 hectares and is located in the southeast corner of Guelph. It is bound by the future extension of Poppy Drive West to the north, Victoria Road to the east, Maltby Road to the south and Southgate Business Park to the west
Purpose and effect of the amendment
The purpose of the Official Plan Amendment is to incorporate the Clair-Maltby Secondary Plan into the City’s Official Plan. This will be done by deleting the existing land use policies and designations that apply to the Clair-Maltby lands, amending schedules, and adding a new Section to the Official Plan that includes the new policies, schedules and corresponding definitions for the Clair-Maltby Secondary Plan.
The proposed secondary plan is supported by technical work completed through the Comprehensive Environmental Impact Study, the Master Environmental Servicing Plan, the Energy and Other Utilities Study and the Fiscal Impact Assessment.
The Clair-Maltby Secondary Plan is based on six years of extensive consultation and planning work and presents a vision, principles, land use designations and policies to guide development within the area to 2051.
How to participate
The purpose of the Public Meeting is to share information and consider public comments about the amendment which will be reviewed by staff prior to Council’s decision at a future meeting. If you wish to speak about these amendments or provide a written submission, please register online at, email or call the City Clerk’s office at 519-837-5603 (TTY 519-826-9771) by Friday, September 17, 2021 at 10 a.m.
