About the Project
Middlesex Centre is developing a new Servicing Master Plan (SMP). This plan will guide policies and infrastructure initiatives for Middlesex Centre's water, wastewater, stormwater and waste management systems over the next 20 years.
At the same time, we are also undertaking a Transportation Master Plan (TMP). You can find more information about that plan on the TMP webpage.
Middlesex Centre is undertaking an update to the SMP that was previously completed in 2010.
Since the completion of the 2010 plan, the municipality has experienced growth in some settlement areas which has prompted servicing extensions and infrastructure upgrades not captured or envisioned in the previous study. As such, this update will examine the servicing system needs by reviewing:
- New planning policies
- Population and development growth projections
- Current and future needs and issues that exist within the municipality
The SMP will identify shortcomings in the water, wastewater, stormwater and solid waste servicing systems, identify alternative solutions, evaluate those alternatives against a set of evaluation criteria, and then identify a preferred solution(s) to support planned growth in Middlesex Centre to the year 2042.
The project is being led by Stantec Consulting Ltd., who bring significant expertise with master servicing plans and knowledge of Middlesex Centre’s infrastructure projects.
Municipal staff will play an active role in the project, providing oversight and support to the consultants.
This is a multi-year project, starting in fall of 2022 and expected to conclude in 2023.
Funding for the project, $452,768, was approved by Council in August of 2022, with funds coming from Development Charges.
The project will be undertaken in accordance with the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process. It will include public meetings, surveys and numerous touch points with residents and Council to gather critical feedback and input.
