Community Organizing to Grow the Greenbelt
Langford Conservancy

The project mobilizes a network of community organizations in Brant County to support Greenbelt expansion, including the addition of lands adjacent to the provincial study area. Langford Conservancy and Sustainable Brant will collaborate with local Six Nations, residents’ associations, farmers and others to build strong public support. Groups are motivated by increasing development pressures in the County, the recent purchase of farmland by land speculators and expected urban boundary expansion by the City of Brantford. The groups will prepare evidence for the province to consider expansion for additional lands in the Grant River Watershed; launch a postcard and social media campaign, with videos and online letter to the government; develop a map of lands recommended for expansion; and host community forms to learn more about the Greenbelt and facilitate participation at the provincial open house scheduled for the area. The groups will also make formal submissions through the Environmental Bill of Rights.
