There is a connection between health and where we live. Designing communities that promote and support active and sustainable transportation will have a positive impact on the overall health of Peel residents at all ages and stages of life.
Over the last four years, we:
- Received Provincial approval on Regional Official Plan Amendment 27 (ROPA 27) – Health and the Built Environment, Age-Friendly Planning and Technical and Administrative Updates.
- Worked in partnership with Brampton, Caledon and Mississauga to begin implementing ROPA 27.
- Developed indicators and a process to evaluate and visually map implementation of ROPA 27.
