Vision for Royal Park

The vision behind the Royal Park community is to bridge the new development to the rich historic roots of the area, borrowing names and themes from London’s famous ‘boroughs.

Royal Park Concept Plan

The Royal Park Concept Plan is a detailed plan that is consistent with the White City Official Community Plan, the Town Centre Neighbourhood Plan and the Rural Municipality (RM) of Edenwold Official Community Plan. Concept Plans address all necessary and required planning considerations, including:

  • Local and major roads
  • Approximate lot location and dimensions/parceling patterns
  • Housing mix and densities
  • Commercial land allocations
  • Public use sites including parks and schools
  • Trail linkages and transportation networks
  • Servicing strategies and general location of services
  • Development phasing

The Boroughs of Royal Park

Each borough within Royal Park represents a distinct neighbourhood within the Concept Plan:

  • Camden – The higher density, vibrant Town Centre. It is geographically central to Royal Park, similar to the inspirational Camden in London,a central Borough in the heart of the City.
  • Bankside – South of Camden. The northern boundary of this neighbourhood is Chuka Creek, so Bankside alludes to being on the bank of the creek.
  • Bedford– East of Bankside. Named after Bedford Park, the large park/school site at the cross-roads of this neighbourhood.
  • Uxbridge – North of Camden. Named for the two roadways that serve as a “bridge”, connecting the east and west portions of this neighbourhood, which are divided by the water feature that runs through the neighbourhood.
  • Sutton & Kenton –Sutton was applied to the larger remaining neighbourhood within the Rural Municipality of Edenwold, and Kenton to the smaller. Sutton is the name of a large London Borough and Kenton is the name of a a smaller London neighbourhood
  • Addington – A mixed use borough, containing commercial, institutional and multi-family residential areas.

Town Centre Neighbourhood Plan

TOWN CENTRE VISION

The Town of White City strives to develop a plan that describes and illustrates the long-term vision for a strong, living and vibrant Town Centre Neighbourhood that will result in mixed use commercial/residential growth and a healthy business environment.

A neighbourhood that is the centre of business activity, and the focus for cultural and recreational activities, provides housing for a diverse residential community, and offers a quality destination for visitors to the Town. The proposed neighbourhood is identified as the showcase for the community, the source of civic pride, and the community should work toward achieving that goal. (p. 7, Town Centre Neighbourhood Plan)

The Town Centre Neighbourhood Plan is part of the Town of White City’s Official Community Plan and provides a vision and functional policy framework for White City’s new town centre.

The Royal Park Concept Plan will accommodate the future growth of White City and the area. Royal Park is a truly complete community with mixed-uses that include recreation, civic, residential, commercial uses, and transportation upgrades.
