Proposed Policy Amendments
Haldimand County Council approved the Trails Master Plan (TMP) on October 13, 2009.
The Community Development and Partnerships Division administers the plan. The document was used to guide the development of a long-range plan and implementation strategies to create a County-wide trail network. In June 2012, Council subsequently approved a framework and implementation plan for the TMP. Part of the plan includes the requirement to develop policies and for coordination between departments.
To that end, the Planning and Development Division will:
- Include the existing and proposed trail network within the County’s Geographic Information System (GIS)
- Incorporate new policies within the Official Plan to protect and create trail links consistent with the TMP when development is proposed
- Include policies relating to Active Transportation and promoting walkable communities
