The Federation of North Toronto Residents Associations (FoNTRA) provides its comments on the proposed changes to the four provincial Land Use Plans:
The Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe,
The Greenbelt Plan,
The Oak Ridges Moraine Conservation Plan, and
The Niagara Escarpment Plan.
The proposed changes follow a provincial review aimed at improving the laws passed to permanently protect agricultural and natural lands, and promote smart development in the Greater Golden Horseshoe. They are intended to allow communities to continue to grow while minimizing impacts of urban growth on productive farmland, heritage buildings and landscapes, archeological resources, green spaces, and important natural areas.
