The Mount Pleasant Area consists of about 870 hectares (2,100 acres) and is bound by Mayfield Road to the north, Mississauga Road to the west, Bovaird Drive to the south, with the existing Fletcher’s Meadow community to the east.
Secondary Planning for the Mount Pleasant area was initiated in 2004 in response to Council’s direction to develop a "Smart Growth" community, which will serve as an exemplary community for future development in North West Brampton. This community is adjacent to the Mount Pleasant Village Mobility Hub and centred around the GO Transit Station, providing both communities local and regional higher order transit service. Mixed use and higher density development is to be provided at transit nodes along a Transit Spine Road, providing convenient pedestrian access to transit services and local amenities.
The Mount Pleasant Secondary Plan has provided policies and implementation mechanisms that will deliver an improved Natural Heritage System (NHS) over the current conditions, totalling approximately 360 acres. That represents an increase over the current 8% of natural cover to 17% natural cover.
The Plan also includes provisions for the following:
- Conservation of heritage resources
- A hierarchy of parks and retail and commercial designations
- Strategically placed schools and places of worship
- Gateways, networks of trails and pathways connecting the community with existing and future communities
Innovative policies, implementation tools and processes have been established that include commitments at the Federal, Provincial, and municipal level as well as landowners and approval agencies to provide for the early provision of the necessary infrastructure to bring this plan into a reality.
As part of the secondary planning process, the City retained a number of consultants to undertake the component studies (environmental, community design, transportation, open space, cultural heritage, retail, servicing, etc.). The findings of these studies assisted staff in the preparation of a secondary plan that implements the principles of transit-oriented development and new urbanism.
The Mount Pleasant Secondary Plan Area 51 and Land Use Plan were approved by City Council on February 10, 2010. Subsequently, the block plans for sub-area 51-1 and sub-area 51-2 were also approved.
