Stage 3 Glenorchy Master Plan approved by Conservation Halton Board February 11
The master planning process, which will determine the future use of the area, is now complete. Glenorchy as a whole new Conservation Area may provide certain passive recreational or educational opportunities to the surrounding growing population or perhaps serve solely as a natural heritage area. One of the primary objectives is to protect and restore this unique natural environment.
The Stage 3, or final, master plan for Glenorchy was presented to the Conservation Halton Board of Directors on February 11, 2010 and was unanimously approved by the Board. Due to the size of the report, we have broken it into several sections:
Glenorchy Stage 3 Report - cover to page 7
Glenorchy Stage 3 Report - pages 8 to 11
Glenorchy Stage 3 Report - pages 12 to 17
Glenorchy Stage 3 Report - pages 18 to 58
Glenorchy Stage 3 Report - pages 59 to 64
Glenorchy Stage 3 Report - pages 65 to 90
Glenorchy Stage 3 Report - pages 91 to 106
Glenorchy Stage 3 Report - pages 107 to 128
Once the Conservation Halton Board and the Ontario Realty Corporation approve the Master Plan, staff and their
consultants will begin work on the implementation plan. In the next few years, the focus will be on restoration of the natural environment and any development such as trails on the site is likely five to ten years away.
