Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link
A steering committee comprised of staff, council, and community members is working with Dillon Consulting to develop a secondary plan for the Port Stanley Harbour.

The Municipality of Central Elgin (Municipality), supported by Dillon Consulting (Dillon), is developing a Secondary Plan to lay out the long term vision and plan for the repurposing of the Port Stanley Harbour lands and their planned integration with the adjacent waterfront areas in Port Stanley. The Port Stanley Harbour Area Secondary Plan (Harbour Plan) will build on previous work to identify land use designations and policies that will guide detailed planning and recommend the location of specific land uses, such as parks, recreation, retail and tourist commercial, housing (both primary and second/vacation homes) and infrastructure investment. The Harbour Plan will be the statutory plan needed to take the harbour lands from vision to action. Public consultation will be a significant component of the Secondary Plan to obtain input from adjacent landowners and area residents.

The Study Area includes the Port Stanley Harbour, the Adjacent Harbour Lands, the Main Street/Bridge Street Adjacent Lands, and the Maud Street/Bessie Street Area,

The overall study area is approximately 85 hectares:

Approximately 15 hectares of the study area consists of the former Transport Canada Harbour owned by the Municipality, which is largely vacant and designated Port Stanley Harbour in the Official Plan.

The Adjacent Harbour Lands designation located at the south end of the west harbour are approximately 1.97 hectares in area and are currently occupied by McAsphalt Industries Limited.

The Maud Street/Bessie Street Special Policy Area is a 2.92 hectare enclave of predominantly residential use, with many older cottages on small lots.

The Main Street/Bridge Street Adjacent Lands Special Policy Area is a 1.48 hectare area of predominantly commercial development that comprises the main commercial core of the former village.

The balance of the Study Area consists of adjacent developed lands, an unevaluated wooded hillside, Kettle Creek, and Lake Erie.
