Brampton continues planning future of city's last undeveloped area
What’s in store for Brampton’s last undeveloped area; Heritage Heights?
Recently, the city acquired the services of DIALOG Planning and Design to re-launch a strategy for the Secondary Plan process for the undeveloped area.
The objective of this re-engagement strategy is to involve all landowners within the Secondary Plan, one of the last remaining Greenfield areas in Brampton which will help to shape the future of Heritage Heights, which makes up 1/16 of Brampton’s total area.
Located in northwest Brampton, from Mayfield Road to the Credit River valley, and from Winston Churchill Boulevard to Mississauga Road, it was highlighted as the proposed location for a new town centre in the Brampton 2040 Vision.
This town centre plans to be a complete, full-service, multi-use place with both housing and work options as well as being a proposed location for a third healthcare facility in Brampton.
In order to help develop the future of Heritage Heights, the city of Brampton sought input from Bramptonians during the month of November.
“The 2040 Vision aims to bring about real change in how we plan, including looking at all development as part of a whole. By working closely with stakeholders and residents from every experience and background, it is our goal to help ‘complete’ a Brampton that reflects the wants and needs of the people who live here,” said Regional Councillor Martin Medeiros, Chair, Planning and Development Committee.
Residents were encouraged to attend an informative session at Cassie Campbell Community Centre last month to be able to view displays, learn about the planning process, share their ideas and ask questions.
“The Heritage Heights visioning session provides an amazing opportunity for Bramptonians to get involved in shaping the last undeveloped area of our city into a Complete Community. I encourage all to attend and make their voices heard on what matters most to them, whether it’s jobs, transit, healthcare or the environment. Together, we can create the foundation to build a Heritage Heights that is safe, sustainable and successful,” said Mayor Patrick Brown.
After gathering the input from Brampton residents, Heritage Heights’ next steps will be to create a concept plan, which the city council will have to approve in the new year.
