Prudhommes Secondary Plan Background :

The Town of Lincoln and Niagara Region initiated an update to the Prudhommes Secondary Plan. The project sets out a new urban vision, urban design and public realm guidelines, updated land-use designations, servicing strategies, transportation requirements, and implementation policies. The Prudhommes Secondary Plan area is over 50 hectares in size and is bounded by Lake Ontario on the north, the QEW on the south, Jordan Road on the east and Victoria Avenue on the west.

Decision to Approve

On July 26, 2018, the Council of the Regional Municipality of Niagara, as the approval authority under the Planning Act, has made a decision to modify and approve Official Plan Amendment No. 3 – Prudhommes Secondary Plan to the Town's Official Plan.

The decision for the lands on the east side of Jordan Harbour have been deferred by Regional Council until conformity with the Greenbelt Plan can be achieved.

Notices of appeal period is complete. The decision of the Regional Municipality of Niagara is final.

The necessary applications and approvals for development may commence now that the Secondary Plan is approved.

The Secondary Plan Process

A team of consultants specializing in planning, design and engineering were retained to prepare the Secondary Plan update. As an initial step in the process, a kick off presentation was held on September 7, 2016. Ken Greenberg, a renowned urban designer, teacher and writer, highlighted the tremendous opportunities for this site:
