Protecting our natural heritage

On June 4, the Ontario Municipal Board approved the City’s Official Plan Amendment for the Natural Heritage System (OPA 42).

This brings into effect new Official Plan policies that support long-term protection for significant wetlands, rivers, woodlands, wildlife habitats, and restoration areas.

Now, almost a quarter of the land in Guelph is protected from development by our natural heritage strategy.
