New Tecumseth Official Plan

New Tecumseth Growth Managment Reports
The purpose of this report is to update residential and non-residential growth forecasts for the Town of New Tecumseth and determine land requirements to accommodate such growth, as input to an Official Plan review process.
Urban Forest Management Strategy
It is a long-term (i.e., 20 year) plan that addresses: tree inventory needs, tree planting opportunities, tree care needs (e.g., pruning, cabling, soil amendments, etc.) and hazard prevention. This plan then outlines mechanisms of implementation, including development of more short-term plans incorporating these items on a priority basis, as well as ongoing public education, and anticipated budgetary requirements.
Updated Leisure & Culture Master Plan
The Town of New Tecumseth offers a high quality of life to local residents through access to a varied open space system, its small community atmosphere, a strong employment base, and its proximity to other population centres. As a result, New Tecumseth continues to experience strong growth pressures, particularly in the form of residential development. Growth has largely been focused on the Town’s three settlement areas – Alliston (including Briar Hill), Beeton, and Tottenham.
In response to these issues, the Town has undertaken an update to the 2000 Leisure & Culture Master Plan. The scope of the Leisure & Culture Master Plan Update encompasses the acquisition, provision and distribution of parks, culture, and leisure facilities and services.
Urban Design Guidelines
The Town of New Tecumseth Urban Design Guidelines were developed as a component of the growth management study to update the Town's Official Plan. These guidelines were initiated in light of the Town's projected development growth over the next twenty years and the desire to guide urban growth in a coordinated and pleasing manner. Specifically, the guidelines reinforce the Province's Smart Growth initiatives and a key enduring Official Plan principle: to "maintain a pleasant small town environment that allows for a mix of rural, agricultural and urban interests to continue and to thrive"
Façade Improvement Guidelines
The Town of New Tecumseth - Façade Improvement Guidelines were developed to augment the Town's Urban Design Guidelines and Landscape Design Guidelines by providing property owners in the three urban commercial cores of Alliston, Beeton and Tottenham, guidelines for restoring and/or refurbishing their commercial storefront facades in the context of an historical building conservation strategy. The Guidelines are intended to assist in the overall enhancement of the visual appearance of the commercial core areas in support of their long term economic viability.
Community Improvement Plan
The Alliston, Beeton and Tottenham Downtowns - Community Improvement Plan (CIP) has been prepared to provide grants to eligible property owners in each of the three commercial downtown cores of Alliston, Beeton and Tottenham to assist with the costs of restoration and/or refurbishment of the commercial storefront facades, exterior side street elevations and/or rear elevations facing the Boyne River, in the context of an historical building conservation strategy.
Urban Commerical Core Parking Study
The Town's objective is to ensure that an adequate parking supply is provided in each of the urban commercial core areas to encourage healthy and vibrant downtown areas and ensure their long-term viability.

Addendum To Class Environmental Assessment for Wastewater Treatment (February 2005)
The Town of New Tecumseth has undertaken a review of the wastewater treatment strategy recommended in the Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) for Wastewater Treatment conducted in 2005. A component of the preferred alternative identified in the 2005 Class EA was decommissioning the Tottenham WWTP, pumping all wastewater flows from the Community of Tottenham to the Regional WWTP for treatment, and expanding the Regional WWTP.
The outcome of the study will be the issuance of an Addendum to the 2005 Class EA Environmental Study Report, in accordance with the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (as amended in 2007) which is an approved process under the Environmental Assessment Act. The Addendum was placed on the public record for review on September 1st, 2010. Subject to comments received, the Addendum will be final on October 1st, 2010.
