Boundary Adjustment Negotiations

South-West Oxford Boundary Adjustment Committee

Mayor David Mayberry, Councillor George Way and Councillor Craig Gillis have been appointed to the Ingersoll/South-West Oxford Boundary Adjustment Committee for the current term of Council. The purpose of the committee is to carry out potential boundary adjustment negotiations between the Town of Ingersoll and the Township of South-West Oxford for future development along the 401 corridor. The members of the Committee act as a liasion for their respective Councils.

Ingersoll Boundary Adjustment Committee

Ingersoll is facing a deficit of industrial and residential lands to meet its future growth needs as detailed in the Updated County and Area Municipal Growth Forecasts and Land Need Analysis report by the County of Oxford Community Planning department and supported by Hemson Consulting Ltd. Phase 1 Comprehensive Review study, which were presented to Ingersoll Council at its regular meeting in May 2019. 

The most recent growth land needs analysis for Ingersoll identifies the need for additional residential and industrial development lands to accommodate the Town’s projected housing and employment growth for the 20 year planning period set out in the Provincial Policy Statement and County of Oxford Official Plan. The lands identified for the potential boundary adjustment have been under consideration to meet Ingersoll’s growth needs for a number of years.  Further, a portion of these lands are designated in Oxford County’s Official Plan as lands for “future urban growth” (“Schedule C-3” of the Official Plan). 

The policies of the Provincial Policy Statement and County of Oxford Official Plan both require that growth and development be directed to designated settlement areas with an appropriate level of services.   To be consistent with these policies,   the subject lands must be brought into the municipal and designated settlement boundary for the Town of Ingersoll before their development for residential, industrial or other urban type uses would be permitted (highlighted in pink). Map of proposed boundary adjustment with Ingersoll

The properties under consideration represent a mix of attractive land for future industrial development along the 401 and lands for potential future residential development, such as those along Ingersoll’s eastern border.  In order to ensure efficient use of the land and a sufficient mix of housing types the parties to the agreement have established that residential development will pursue a density of 27 units/hectare (11 units/acre).  The specific use of the lands will be determined through a subsequent secondary planning study exercise.

At this time South-West Oxford and the Town of Ingersoll's Councils have approved consideration of the proposal to adjust their mutual boundary at a public meeting. Council will not vote on whether to support or oppose the proposal until they have consulted with the public. 

The public meeting is scheduled to be held on February 25th, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. at the Salford Community Centre located at 383908 Salford Road, Salford ON, N0J 1W0.
