In June, 2010 the County retained planning consultants (MHBC) to develop a concept plan, report and an official plan amendment for the long term development of Wellington Place. In addition to these County-owned lands in Aboyne, the project area includes adjacent property owned by Groves Memorial Hospital set aside for a new hospital. A Subwatershed Study and other site-specific studies (e.g. Archaeological Assessments, Agricultural Impact Assessment, Site Servicing Review, etc.) have informed the consultant's work on the concept plan. We have obtained public input in the form of two open houses (held in October, 2010 and May, 2011) and a workshop with local community groups (November, 2010). MHBC has completed an Addendum Report (attached) outlining the results of the most recent public consultation, together with their recommendations for the concept plan.
The consultants have completed the report and concept plan (dated April 18, 2011), which have been presented and made available to the public, Centre Wellington council and County council. An amendment to the County Official Plan has also been completed to implement the preferred concept plan by establishing land use policies for the property.
