Newmarket holding public meeting for 202 homes proposed for police union lands

The same developer who built on the former Glenway golf course wants to build mostly townhouses on a portion of the property at Stonehaven and Bayview

A public meeting for the more than 200 homes planned for the former York Regional Police union property on Stonehaven Avenue in Newmarket is scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 13.

Marianneville Stonehaven Limited — the same developer who built the subdivision on the former Glenway golf course in Newmarket — is seeking an amendment to the official plan and rezoning to build 60 single-detached houses and 142 townhouses on about half of the 40-acre property at 600 Stonehaven Ave., east of Bayview Avenue.

The remainder of the lands are protected from development as they are on floodplains and wetland.

The York Regional Police Association sold the property, which includes a new clubhouse built in 2000 and sports fields, as it is relocating to Aurora, closer to the YRP headquarters on Don Hillock Drive.

The electronic public meeting will be livestreamed on newmarket.ca/meetings on Tuesday, Oct. 13 at 1 p.m. The video will also be made available after the meeting and archived on the town’s website.

You can find out more information about the application and view the site plan in full size on the town’s website under current applications for Ward 1 or send an email to planning@newmarket.ca. 

Council will not be making a final decision regarding these applications, but will refer all written and verbal comments to planning staff to consider and return with a report to a future committee of the whole or council meeting.

How to get involved:

  • Submit written comments by email to clerks@newmarket.ca by end of day Oct. 12 for council to consider prior to the meeting. Written comments will also continue to be received after the public meeting, emailed to planning@newmarket.ca or by calling 905-953-5321.
  • Speak to council during the live meeting through video conferencing (Zoom) by pre-registering for a remote deputation by completing the form at newmarket.ca/meetings or by providing your full name and contact information by registering via clerks@newmarket.ca or by calling 905-953-5300, ext. 2203. 

If you wish to be notified of the decision of the proposed official plan amendment and zoning bylaw amendment, you must make a written request to planning services at the Town of Newmarket, 395 Mulock Drive, P.O. Box 328, STN MAIN Newmarket, ON L3Y 4X7 or by emailing planning@newmarket.ca.
