Monteith Brown Planning Consultants - Development Planning: Representative Projects

Representative Projects

Residential / Lifestyle Development


Huron Oaks, Bright’s Grove


Huron Oaks, an 18-hole Championship Golf Course where 2003 Masters Champion Mike Weir began developing his skills prior to turning professional, is located in Sarnia's Bright's Grove community on the southern shores of Lake Huron. We were retained to assist with the re-design and approval of a plan for the integration of approximately 100 mixed single detached and multi-residential condominium units within the grounds of the existing course. A policy framework was developed to address the integration of residential units into the active golf course setting and design assistance was provided for the re-design of the course to complement the integrated residential component.


Site Selection Studies


London District Catholic School Board


MBPC assists numerous clients with site selections for new facility development, including the London District Catholic School Board. The Board's territory covers the City of London and parts of Middlesex, Oxford, and Elgin Counties. Our comprehensive site selection process and evaluation matrix involves an exhaustive assessment of vacant and available land, planned development, existing land use, site characteristics, community compatibility, facility distribution, transportation systems, and existing/planned infrastructure. MBPC has assisted the Board in selecting and ultimately developing a number of new secondary schools, elementary schools, and a new state of the art administration centre.


Rice Development Subdivision


Village of Grand Bend

A summertime haven for beach-goers, Grand Bend has a tremendous variation in seasonal population and is witnessing an emergence of older adults seeking retirement opportunities for housing and lifestyle. We have been working with Rice Development in the design of a 50-acre mixed use subdivision situated along Main Street in Grand Bend, Ontario. Highlights of the project include the approval for the development of a portion of the land as a community health centre, as well as detailed designs to incorporate adult lifestyle, continuum of care, commercial lands, and a 120 lot residential subdivision development.


Commercial Development


Century 21, London


We were retained to assist in the redevelopment of a new Century 21 office in London, Ontario. This project involved innovative site design and municipal development approvals to facilitate the new building program. MBPC managed and resolved a multitude of challenges including land acquisitions, building demolition, minor variance approvals, easement negotiations, and parking provision to lead to this project's success.


The Rapids Parkway Subdivision


City of Sarnia

The City of Sarnia acquired 87 acres of land situated in one of that City's largest planned growth areas situated along the northerly limit of the Highway 402 Corridor west of Modeland Road. Through background studies undertaken by the City, it was determined that subdividing the land into smaller blocks and marketing the blocks for sale to the development community would yield the best return on the land for the City. Taking into account the Official Plan and Secondary Plan for the area, MBPC created a mixed use subdivision plan that employed the principles of smart growth and strong urban design which featured a range of low to high residential densities with commercial and open space opportunities.

Exeter Honda Dealership


Town of Exeter


MBPC was retained as Project Manager to assist in the design and approvals process for a new Honda dealership in Exeter. Project responsibilities included the coordination of a multi-disciplinary Team, development of a conceptual master plan to confirm the proposed lot creation for the facility development, the preparation of planning justification for the rezoning to permit the use, site plan design, and municipal planning approvals.
