City council to consider plans for Hwy 40 industrial business park

Plans are in the works for a new industrial business park in Sarnia.

Monteith Sutherland Limited, has proposed to create a 48 block industrial subdivision on the 158 acre parcel of land on Highway 40, between Kimball Road and McGregor Side Road.

Mayor Mike Bradley said city council will consider a recommendation by city staff to approve draft plans when it meets Monday.

“It’s in the right area, in the industrial sector, it gives us more diversity as it relates to business parks,” said Bradley. “The city has the Highway 402 one, we have the areas around the Research Park, which really are for light use, this is heavy industrial and it fits perfectly into that Plank Road sector.”

If approved, each block or lot would be developed in accordance with an approved Site Plan Control Agreement.

The property is currently zoned Heavy Industrial, which permits a wide range of industrial uses, including manufacturing and processing.
