East Side Lands

One of the Region's key roles is to manage future growth in Waterloo Region and ensure necessary municipal infrastructure and services are in place, such as water and wastewater.

In June 2009, Regional Council approved the new Regional Official Plan with approximately 300 hectares of land designated for employment uses in what is known as the East Side Lands. The East Side Lands is located on the eastern edge of Waterloo Region, at the border of Woolwich Township and Cambridge, near the Region of Waterloo International Airport.

Master Environmental Servicing Plan

In November 2010, the Region began a Master Environmental Servicing Plan (MESP) and Community Plan for the East Side Lands in cooperation with the City of Cambridge, the Township of Woolwich, the City of Kitchener and the Grand River Conservation Authority.
