Best Practices Guide to Natural Heritage Systems Planning

Nature Network News: Best Practices Guide to Natural Heritage Systems Planning:

Ontario Nature’s Best Practices Guide to Natural Heritage Systems Planning is now available for download from the Ontario Nature website. Or download pdf here: nhs-guide-web.  While provincial regulation promotes the planning of natural heritage systems – and even mandates it in areas like the Greenbelt – many municipalities are failing to do so.

Ontario Nature’s new guide is designed to remedy this situation by identifying the best planning examples and providing insightful analysis from which other municipalities can learn.
