Official Plan Amendment #42 – Natural Heritage System
The purpose of the Natural Heritage System is to establish a sustainable greenspace network throughout the City. The protection of the Natural Heritage System will be achieved through an update to the Official Plan. The Natural Heritage System and Policies proposed through Amendment 42 to the Official Plan will replace the current Official Plan Core and Non-Core Greenland policies and mapping in accordance with the Provincial Policy Statement.
As Official Plan Amendment 42 concerns consistency with the Provincial Policy Statement, the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing is the approval authority. A decision was issued by the Ministry on February 22, 2011 and is available below as well as the Notice of Decision.
