OFA provides comments to the Honourable Steve Clark, Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing, regarding proposed amendments to the Greenbelt Area boundary regulation and the Greenbelt Plan, in addition to ideas for adding more Urban River Valleys. The current provincial framework for farmland protection and growth management results in the cumulative loss of agricultural lands, prioritizing development and growth over farmland preservation. The proposal to ‘Greenbelt’ Urban River Valleys (URVs) should not be considered an acceptable means of maintaining the Greenbelt’s total land area to balance the loss of protected agricultural lands to development. These empty promises and policy tools to protect farmland are no match for the power of MZOs that prioritize development and circumvent agricultural and environmental protections. Adding more URVs in the future should be limited to public and urban lands only, so that URV policies do not limit the ability of agricultural uses or normal farm practices to continue on lands owned and operated by Ontario’s farmers. OFA believes that the Ontario government should designate all lands in Ontario that are outside of current settlement area boundaries as ‘Greenbelt’. Reiterating our comments from phase one of the consultation, the OFA recommends that this proposal to grow the Greenbelt incrementally be withdrawn.
