Located In North-West quadrant of the city, the Area – Part Of Vision 2040 – is the last Undeveloped Zone in Brampton

BRAMPTON: The City of Brampton is calling all residents to have their say on plans for Brampton’s last undeveloped area: Heritage Heights.

Making up 1/16 of Brampton’s total area, Heritage Heights is located in northwest Brampton, stretching from Mayfield Road to the Credit River valley, and from Winston Churchill Boulevard to Mississauga Road. It was highlighted in the Brampton 2040 Vision as the proposed location for a new town centre – a complete, full-service, mixed-use place with work and housing options. It is also proposed as a location for a third healthcare facility in Brampton.

 “The Heritage Heights visioning session provides an amazing opportunity for Bramptonians to get involved in shaping the last undeveloped area of our city into a Complete Community. I encourage all to attend and make their voices heard on what matters most to them, whether it’s jobs, transit, healthcare or the environment. Together, we can create the foundation to build a Heritage Heights that is safe, sustainable and successful.”

Mayor Patrick Brown said:  To help develop the future of Heritage Heights, the City is seeking valuable input from the people of Brampton across four days in November. Residents are encouraged to attend the visioning session at Cassie Campbell Community Centre from November 26 to 29 at any time from 9 am to 8 pm. Attendees will have the opportunity to view displays, learn about the planning process, ask questions of City staff, and share their ideas for Heritage Heights.”

There are a few periods of particular interest:

• A special kick-off presentation will take place on November 26 from 6 to 8 pm

• Progress update presentations will occur on November 28 and 29 from 6 to 8 pm

• Public design sessions will take place on November 26, 28 and 29 from 2 to 4 pm

The Heritage Heights Community is bounded by Mayfield Road to the north, Winston Churchill Boulevard to the west, Mississauga Road to the east and the Credit River Valley to the south.

There are a number of key issues in North West Brampton (i.e. planning for employment lands, Stage 2 – Environmental Assessment for the GTA West Corridor, North-West Brampton Shale Policy Review, GO Train layover facility, potential new GO Station, a 400 bed Health Care Facility) that will impact the future planning for Heritage Heights (Secondary Plan Areas 52 and 53).

 Regional Councillor Martin Medeiros, Chair, Planning and Development Committee said: “The 2040 Vision aims to bring about real change in how we plan, including looking at all development as part of a whole. By working closely with stakeholders and residents from every experience and background, it is our goal to help ‘complete’ a Brampton that reflects the wants and needs of the people who live here.”
