Plan the Bruce: Good Growth

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link


Combining Development With Conservation of Character

Growth usually means an increase of people, jobs, businesses, buildings, roads, and traffic. Growth can also mean supporting community amenities like arenas and schools or improving infrastructure. Where growth happens — and how it happens — needs to be carefully planned. Planning helps to put the growth in the right place, with the right services, to provide the most benefit to the community — at the lowest cost. That’s why planning concentrates most of the houses and jobs within our towns and hamlets, paying attention to the fit within the community. Planning also supports the right kind of growth in the countryside by thinking about compatibility and preservation of our natural assets.

Good planning decisions now will help us inspire growth and development innovation in the right proportions and the right places while sustaining our quality of life.

Bruce County is expected to continue to experience population and employment growth over the next 25 years. We must plan for growth and provide the basic services, infrastructure and affordable housing our expanding population will need.

Wise growth management practices and policy in our new Official Plan will assist municipalities to balance growth in a sustainable and coordinated manner.
