Public open houses were held online for growth related focus area draft policies and settlement area boundary draft technical studies between September 21st through October 1st.

This connected natural system provides natural services such as clean water and air, habitat for plants and animals, as well as cultural, recreational and health benefits.
Through Peel 2041: Regional Official Plan Review, the goals of the Greenlands System policy review are to:
- Ensure conformity with Provincial Policy Statement (PPS);
- Identify actions that are needed to achieve the Region's natural heritage objectives; and
- Develop a Greenlands System Strategy to update the Region's natural heritage system policies and identify a Regional Natural Heritage System.
The Region and its partners work together to protect, restore and enhance natural areas. Regional staff will continue to work with the area municipalities, province, conservation authorities and other organizations on this review and update of the Regional Official Plan.
