Former Public Works Site Master Plan

Planning a safe, supportive and connected community for homes, work and recreation.

The Town of Oakville's Former Public Works Site (Works site) is located in the area of Dundas Street and Trafalgar Road in the Uptown Core growth area of Oakville. The property has been vacant for several years and the town recently placed a priority on determining the most beneficial scenario for disposing of the lands and encouraging development opportunities.

The Works site benefits from its excellent location on a future higher order transit corridor on Trafalgar Road and it is only a few hundred metres from Dundas Street – a planned bus rapid transit route. The Town’s long-term vision for the site, as provided through the Official Plan is for the site to be a mixed-use development composed of mid-rise and taller buildings that supports the living, working and everyday needs of residents.

The Works site is in an ideal location for redevelopment with opportunities to provide for mixed use buildings, standalone residential, retail and service commercial, restaurants and offices along a multi-modal corridor. 

The purpose of the master plan is to look at options for marketing the property, how best to subdivide the lands into development blocks and how to appropriately balance the future development of the property with our vision for the Uptown Core Growth Area.
