Studies currently in progress or recently completed by the Town of Whitby under the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process are briefly described below. We will update this page with current project information as it becomes available.

 West Whitby Major Roads Study

The West Whitby Landowners Group and the Town of Whitby are undertaking a Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) study to confirm the location and characteristics of the following roads within the West Whitby Secondary Plan:

  • Desmond G. Newman Boulevard (formerly New Coronation Road) from Dundas Street to existing Coronation Road north of Taunton Road,
  • Bonacord Avenue from east of Lynde Creek to Desmond G. Newman Boulevard,
  • Twin Streams Road from east of Lynde Creek to Desmond G. Newman Boulevard, and
  • Existing Coronation Road from Rossland Road to Taunton Road.

This Class EA Study is being completed using the integrated approach which is an approved process to meet both the Municipal Class EA and Planning Act (plan of subdivision) requirements at the same time. Each of the four roads is listed in Schedule "C" of the Class EA and this Study is being undertaken in accordance with the full Municipal Class EA process. See Study Area map below.

In addition, the West Whitby Major Roads Study will include the completion of Phases 1 to 2 of the Municipal Class EA, to ensure that the results of the Study do not preclude future potential road links as follows:

  • Bonacord Avenue from Lake Ridge Road to Desmond G. Newman Boulevard (crossing the West Durham Link), and
  • Twin Streams Road from Lake Ridge Road to Desmond G. Newman Boulevard (crossing the West Durham Link).

The above sections may be implemented later and accordingly, the requirements of Phases 3 and 4 of the Municipal Class EA process may be addressed at a time closer to its construction.

The feasibility of providing local road access to the employments lands south of Dundas Street will be also addressed in this study.

 

Detailed Design for a Stormwater Quality Pond within the Pringle Creek Watershed in the Area of Manning Road and Garden Street

The Town of Whitby has commenced with the detailed design of a new Stormwater Quality Pond in the area adjacent to Pringle Creek Park. The construction of the pond is currently slated for 2014. We are holding a Public Open House at the Town Hall on December 4th (6 to 8pm) to obtain public input. The draft preliminary design  plans will be available for public review and staff will be on hand to answer any comments/questions that arise.

The Town of Whitby is conducting a Schedule B Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) Study to address structural and road geometry issues of White's Bridge. The study includes the identification of problems and opportunities, the evaluation of different alternatives, and the selection of a preferred solution.

Public input is invited for the planning and design of this project. As the project progresses, we will provide current project information through this website for your review and comment.

The following information is now available:

Garden Street between Dryden Boulevard and Taunton Road

The Town of Whitby has initiated a Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) Study for Garden Street between Dryden Boulevard and Taunton Road. This project will study existing and future transportation needs on Garden Street to accommodate the anticipated growth in this area.

Public input is invited for the planning and design of this project. As the project progresses, we will provide current project information through this website for your review and comment.

CP Rail Crossing at New Coronation Road

The Town of Whitby has initiated a Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) Study to identify a preferred solution and preliminary design for the new CP Rail Crossing at the New Coronaton Road.

This study is being carried out in accordance with the planning and design process for a Schedule 'B' project as outlined in the Municipal Engineers Association 'Municipal Class Environmental Assessment,' (October 2000, as amended in 2011).A higher level of consultation will be undertaken to ensure that all concerns and potential impacts are addressed.

Consultation is a key element of the Class EA process and input will be sought from interested stakeholders, including regulatory agencies, interested members of the public and property owners throughout the study. Two Public Information Centres (PICs) were held to provide project updates and to seek input on the presented material.  Information related to this study is available as follows:

Britannia Avenue West Extention Master Plan - Class EA Study

Tribute Communitites and the Town of Whitby (co-proponents) are carrying out a Master Plan - Class Environmental Assessment Study (the Study) to determine the location and characteristics of the proposed westerly extension of Britannia Avenue from east of proposed Windfields Drive to Thickson Road North. The Proposed arterial road would support planned urban growth in north Whitby and Oshawa and the orderly distribution of traffic across the broader transportation network.
