The Province recently released its four updated provincial land use plans for the Greater Golden Horseshoe as a result of the coordinator review: the Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe, the Greenbelt Plan, the Niagara Escarpment Plan and the Oak Ridges Moraine Conservation Plan.
The advisory panel for the coordinated review, chaired by David Crombie, recommended that Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) work with municipalities and stakeholders to develop an Agricultural System across the Greater Golden Horseshoe to support the viability of Ontario’s agri-food sector and protect farmland.
The province will also be hosting a Public House to provide opportunities to learn more and provide input on the proposed Agricultural and Natural Heritage Systems.
The Peterborough Open House will be on September 12th from 6pm – 9pm at Holiday Inn Peterborough -Waterfront, 150 George Street, Peterborough.
