• Economic Development: Sheridan Park Corporate Centre Land Use Master Plan

    The Sheridan Park Corporate Centre is located on 138 hectares (340 acres) north of the Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW) between Erin Mills Parkway and Winston Churchill Boulevard. It was established originally as the Sheridan Park Research Community in the mid-1960s.

    There is restrictive zoning in place and based on an ever changing business climate, the zoning of Sheridan Park is being reviewed and updated.

    In November 2013, the Planning and Building Department along with the Sheridan Park Association, retained Urban Strategies Inc., a planning consultant firm to finalize a Land Use Master Plan for the Sheridan Park Corporate Centre. The Plan is currently out for public comment and will help shape the new zoning by-law for the Park.  These much needed proposed updates to City planning policies for the Park should bolster the number of companies in Mississauga’s growing science and technology sector.

    As Councillor, I am pleased and excited that we are moving forward with plans to update Sheridan Park Corporate Centre.  It’s time to build on the past successes of this innovation hub. There are great opportunities to support existing businesses in the park, and to build new partnerships with innovative companies and post-secondary research institutions like UTM and Sheridan College. It is investments like these that can add new, high-paying jobs and vibrancy to the area.

    The new master plan recommends updates to the City’s land use planning framework based on extensive consultations with businesses located there.  The proposed changes will infuse some flexibility for types of businesses that can provide and support a science and technology hub needs.
