Brampton expansion will impact Halton Hills-- Mayor

CYNTHIA GAMBLE Staff Writer Mayor Rick Bonnette commented recently on an Ontario Municipal Board decision to allow changes to Region of Peel's Official Plan that would see 6,000 acres bordering Halton Hills developed into new homes and businesses. The land in question is in the far northwest corner of Brampton, bounded by Winston Churchill Boulevard to the west, Mayfield Road to the north, Creditview Road to the east and the Credit River to the south. Development is not expected to begin until at least 2011. "I feel there are going to be some tremendous impacts on Halton Hills down the road," said the mayor, pointing to potential traffic issues and growth pressures on this community. Planning Director Bruce MacLean said his department has received a number of enquiries from citizens after the OMB decision, wondering if the Town was following the Brampton/Peel moves. The Town of Halton Hills is a regular commenter to the Brampton and Peel Official Plans and secondary plans changes, he said. The Town is currently part of the initial stages of a transportation study to focus on a north-south corridor, he said. The City of Brampton originally proposed this highway corridor go through the southeast section of Halton Hills. (Cynthia Gamble can be reached at cgamble@independentfreepress.com)
