What is a Master Plan?
Conservation Halton undertook Master Planning not only to guide ecological restoration efforts, but to further our commitment to sharing our Conservation Areas with Halton residents and visitors, both now and in the future.
The master plan is the principal guiding policy document for the planning, development and resource management of each of these conservation areas, which are owned and administered by Conservation Halton. The master plans were undertaken as recommended by the Limestone Legacy report prepared by Conservation Halton in 2007, which proposed a vision to create “a sustainable network of world class conservation parks for ecological health and to provide public greenspace for quality education and recreation.”
The master plans were developed in a phased three stage planning process designed to address growing regional recreational demands while also ensuring the long-term protection and sustainability of this natural escarpment park. The planning process was structured to satisfy the legislative requirements of the Niagara Escarpment Plan and the Conservation Authority Act and has included extensive consultation with the public, stakeholders and related agencies.
To help prepare for all future opportunities and challenges, Conservation Halton has retained the services of EDA Collaborative Inc. to help develop master plans for five Conservation Areas - Glenorchy, Mount Nemo, Rattlesnake Point, Hilton Falls, and Crawford Lake.
