The Town of Aurora has initiated a secondary planning process for the Aurora Northeast (2C) Planning Area.
A secondary plan provides specific schedules and policies for those areas of the Town where more detailed directions for land use, infrastructure, transportation, environment, urban design or similar matters are required beyond the general framework provided by the Official Plan.
Prior to the initiation of the 2C Secondary Plan, the Town completed a detailed Natural Heritage Evaluation (Environmental Report) for the 2C Planning Area. This Natural Heritage Study was completed by North South Environmental Inc. in May 2006 and was approved by Council on June 13, 2006.
The Aurora Northeast (2C) Secondary Plan is being led by a Council-appointed Steering Committee. This is a joint steering committee responsible for both the Five Year Official Plan Review and the 2C Secondary Plan Study.

(natural heritage/environment), to assist in the completion of the official plan review process.
