Map of Greenbelt Hot Spots

Ontario’s world renowned Greenbelt was designed to protect farmland and natural areas from urban sprawl. But across the Greenbelt, landowners and some municipalities want to remove land from the Greenbelt, largely just to build more sprawl or far flung corporate office parks, rather than concentrating growth in already urbanized areas, which would save municipalities and residents money. There are also requests to remove Greenbelt land to build inappropriate infrastructure such as a mega-highway.
