The County of Brant has notified OTA it has initiated an update to the County’s Transportation Master Plan. The update is a comprehensive and multi-year planning exercise, in conjunction with the development of the new Official Plan. The Transportation Master Plan will:
- Set the strategic direction for developing the County’s transportation system and providing the infrastructure to support growth;
- Identify the transportation facilities and services that the County of Brant requires to serve the projected future population;
- Support the growth management strategies of the Official Plan, give policy direction and inform development patterns and long-range financial planning; and
- Develop policies and guidelines for all modes of transportation in the County, including walking, cycling, goods movement and auto travel, and support rail, public transportation and aviation services.
At this stage in the study, officials are gathering input into the County’s transportation needs and opportunities, which will inform the development of the Transportation Master Plans’ infrastructure and policy recommendations.
It is inviting organizations to view the public consultation materials available online at https://engagebrant.ca/transportation-master-plan. A survey and mapping tool will also be available for responses until March 28, 2021 at 11:59 p.m.
If you would like to provide input on County transportation needs and opportunities directly to the Project Team, please cc the following:
