The Ontario government has approved a new livable and sustainable community in City of Pickering.
The community, Seaton, will provide homes for up to 70,000 people and include plans for employment lands.
The City of Pickering can finalize residential subdivision plans and issue building permits to developers so that construction of dense and walkable residential neighbourhoods can begin. The city will work together with the Ontario government, the Region of Durham and Seaton land-owners to ensure that the new community, strategically located on the 407 corridor, will have exceptional protection of ecologically sensitive lands and promote walking and cycling.
The planned employment lands are ideally situated to accommodate new business development and employment opportunities through easy access to the 407.
