Region offers additional opportunities to provide input into Durham Region Greenbelt Plan Review

WHITBY, ON March 31, 2014 – The Regional Municipality of Durham is providing additional opportunities for residents to provide feedback about their experiences with the provincial Greenbelt Plan and Oak Ridges Moraine Conservation Plan (ORMCP), through additional consultation sessions and via an online survey. Please note that these sessions are in addition to those that have taken place in Clarington (March 6), Uxbridge (March 20) and Brock (March 27).


Community consultation sessions include an overview presentation, group discussions, and an opportunity for stakeholders to report back about their experiences with this legislation.


Monday, April 7 from 6 to 9 p.m.
Region of Durham Headquarters
605 Rossland Rd. E., Whitby        

Wednesday, April 16 from 6 to 9 p.m.
Pickering Recreation Complex
1867 Valley Farm Rd., Pickering


In 2015, the province is undertaking a mandatory 10-year review of its Greenbelt Plan, ORMCP and Niagara Escarpment Plan. In preparation, Durham Region has engaged a consultant to assist in conducting a consultation exercise intended to help influence the province’s upcoming legislated review.

The comments received, via these outlets, will be used to develop a Regional submission that highlights the major themes, challenges and opportunities that emerged from the consultation process, with recommendations to address these findings. The final report will be forwarded to the province to provide a Durham Region perspective about the 2015 Greenbelt Plan Review. 


Residents, who are unable to attend a consultation session, are invited to participate in an online survey, which can be found at
