Comments on Environmental Registry proposed changes to the ‘Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe (GGH)’
Some heavy reading but … it is important to remember that the GGH is one of the most biodiverse and heavy developed regions in Canada, where anticipated growth must be carefully managed to sustain the health of our lands, waters and wildlife. The 63 organizations who signed this document, believe the proposals for both the Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe and the Land Needs Assessment Methodology, if implemented, would cause significant adverse effects on the GGH. It will facilitate urban sprawl, lead to an over-designation of the land for urban growth, result in the unnecessary loss of farmlands, and destroy endangered and threatened species habitats. Concerns and recommendations are detailed in this document Growth Plan ERO Submission FINAL.
