Urban Strategies undertook the Niagara Greenbelt Plan Review, which involved a robust community consultation program that engaged a broad range of Regional stakeholders and members of the public. Two rounds of consultation were held bringing together the perspectives of a range of interests including agriculture, environment and natural heritage, planning, development, recreation and tourism, culture, and economic development, as well as perspectives from elected officials. The project built an understanding and regional perspective on the benefits and challenges associated with the Greenbelt Plan and identified future opportunities to improve the Plan and inform the province’s upcoming 2015 review of the legislation.
