After years of wrangling, a decision has finally been made regarding the Seaton lands in north Pickering. At a special Regional Council meeting on Thursday, an official plan amendment was accepted, opening the door for development of the roughly 3,100 acres. Regional Chair Roger Anderson says a lot of carefull planning was required, because it’s such a large piece of land which is owned by developers and the Provincial Government. Anderson says the plans will include residential, commercial and industrial development. He says once completed, the area will house about 70,000 people and roughly 30,000 jobs.
