    “j. Where the City’s Transportation Master Plan indicates the need to protect long-term future municipal roadway corridors in proximity to the City’s boundaries to meet future needs for transportation and coordinated regional connectivity associated with growth beyond the population horizon of this Plan, the general location of Long Term Corridor Protection Areas may be identified on Schedule D: Road Network Plan by amendment to this plan, in consultation with the County of Peterborough and affected adjacent municipalities. Final alignments for any identified corridors will be determined on the basis of corridor protection studies and Class Environmental Assessments in partnership with the County and affected adjacent municipalities.

    Where Long Term Corridor Protection Areas have been identified with concurrence from the County and affected adjacent municipalities, the City will cooperate with the County and affected adjacent municipalities to protect these corridors through negotiation in the review of area plans, plans of subdivision and Official Plan and/or Zoning By-Law Amendments. Where the ultimate alignment and right-of-way of a long-term corridor has been determined, the City will seek to ensure the required road allowance is reserved either as part of, or independent from such planning approvals. Where such allowances have not been determined, the City will request a corridor study in conjunction with proposals to develop land where an allowance may be required to determine which portion of the subject land should be reserved for the future road allowance.

    In addition to all applicable municipal requirements, all development proposals adjacent to and in the vicinity of Provincial Highways will be subject to Provincial review and approval. Early consultation with the Province is encouraged to ensure the integration of municipal planning initiatives with Provincial transportation planning. Areas identified for future development that are located adjacent to or in the vicinity of a Provincial Highway or an interchange/intersection will be subject to the Province’s policies and standards.”
