Shellard Lane Development Study Area Map


The L!V Community Development Landowners Group (Landowners Group) is proposing to develop lands which include properties north of Shellard Lane within Area C Lands of the Special Policy Area 20 with support of their Planning Consultant Arcadis Professional Services, and Environmental Assessment Consultant R.J. Burnside & Associates. The subject lands are located in the southwest quadrant of the City of Brantford and generally lie between Shellard Lane and the CN Rail Trail.

In support of a future site plan and the required collector roads, the Landowners Group has initiated an Integrated Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA). It is intended that the Integrated Municipal Class EA process will also build upon the City of Brantford’s Transportation Master Plan, Active Transportation Master Plan Study, Master Servicing Plans, Parks and Recreation Master Plan and Section 6.9.20 of the City’s Official Plan.  The Study Area is illustrated in the Figure shown above.


The study is being completed as a Schedule C Municipal Class EA process through an integrated planning approach as set out in the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process (Municipal Engineers Association, March 2023) which is an approved process under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act.

The process will include consultation and engagement with the public, agencies, City of Brantford, local developers, and Indigenous communities. The Integrated Municipal Class EA will evaluate alternative solutions for the collector roads, with consideration of the natural, cultural, technical, and financial environment and recommend a preferred solution associated with the future site plan.

Public Information Centres (PICs) are planned to discuss issues related to the project, including alternative solutions and designs, evaluation criteria, environmental impacts and mitigation measures.  PIC dates and details will be advertised as the study progresses.
