Our Goal: Manage land to sustain the natural environment
Natural heritage lands and urban forest coverage provide a range of ecological functions that sustain Brampton’s quality of life, and the broader health of the natural environment. While we use land in cities for housing, transportation, industry and recreation, we also need land to provide for food production and support vegetation for animal habitats and CO2 sequestration. The protection, management and enhancement of Brampton’s natural heritage system and the use of land to build the city must be balanced if Brampton is to continue to enjoy a healthy, livable community.
