New Communities of Oakville Policy

Building a firm foundation

Well-designed neighbourhoods, efficient use of existing land and flexible transportation options will make the New Communities of Oakville north of Dundas Street more livable and sustainable.

The New Communities of Oakville will feature:

  • a variety of uses from residential to commercial to employment
  • a grid street network that offers more opportunity for public transit and walkability
  • a natural heritage and open space system of protected green spaces and parkland
  • an off-road trail system for cyclists and pedestrians
  • heritage elements
  • managed water resources

The North Oakville East and West Secondary Plans, which apply to the lands north of Dundas Street and south of Highway 407, are part of the town's 2006 Official Plan. They allow for higher density urban development – to accommodate about 55,000 people and 35,000 jobs – on the lands outside of the defined natural heritage and open space system.

As part of the town’s Official Plan Review, the North Oakville Secondary Plans Review will recommend updates to the documents.
