In 2012, with the introduction of the Greenlands Securement Program, Brampton worked with its conservation partners to identify several Priority Properties throughout the municipality. Since then, the list of properties has been expanded. A map of current Priority Properties will be made available in the coming weeks.

Since 2015, Brampton has been working with the Credit Valley Conservation, Credit Valley Conservation Foundation and the Credit Valley Heritage Society through the generous support of the Greenbelt to create the Credit Valley Trail Consortium. The goal is to see the creation of an inter-municipal and multi-purpose trail along the entire 113 km length of the Main Valley of Credit River, from Lake Ontario in Port Credit to the Headwaters near Orangeville. The trail is intended to promote the long-term protection of the valley and surrounding lands, Grow the Greenbelt through the Urban River Valley and promote the Credit’s many First Nations, natural and cultural heritage resources.
Much of the lands within the Credit River Valley in Brampton remain in private ownership - only a few significant parcels are currently in City ownership. Efforts to identify and negotiate securement and/or, negotiate access arrangements to facilitate trail development shall be a priority, in the next few years.
