Ontario Infrastructure and Land Corporation (OILC) has submitted five applications for the approval of draft plans of subdivision and related zoning by-law amendments. The proposals reflect the developable OILC lands in each of the Seaton Neighbourhoods. Further, all the Seaton Natural Heritage System lands throughout Seaton are included in one of the rezoning applications.

Of particular interest to Whitevale is the following application that includes the Gravel Pits, lands around the Whitevale Cemetery, and lands north and south of Whitevale Road at the east end of the village (see map above) :
