Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The Town of The Blue Mountains has initiated a density and intensification study for the Town of Thornbury. The purpose of the study is to gain insight from the community regarding residential development, density, infill and intensification within Thornbury. To facilitate the study, the Town has retained SGL Planning and Design Inc. a fully integrated planning and design firm specializing in land use planning, urban design, landscape architecture and development approvals.

As part of the beginning stages of this process, both a public survey and online mapping tool have been launched. The information collected through the survey, mapping tool and through public comment will be used to help identify potential areas for intensification and appropriate residential built form, as well as policy and zoning recommendations for Thornbury as the community continues to grow.

Study Area Information

Generally, the Study Area includes lands bound by Peel Street to the north, Georgian Bay to the east, Russell Street to the south and 10th Line to the west. However, the Study Area excludes lands within the western portion of Thornbury designated Future Secondary Plan Area. These lands will be developed through a more comprehensive Secondary Plan process in the future.

Survey Results

The Town would like to thank everyone that completed the survey. A summary of the survey results can be viewed here.

Mapping Tool

The mapping tool is now closed. Thank you for using it to identify any areas or sites within Thornbury that are suitable/unsuitable for development such as vacant or underutilized sites. The results of the Mapping Tool can be found in the survey results summary.
