Master Planning process

The Trust is working alongside eight partner organizations as part of the Cheltenham Badlands Management Planning Team (CBMPT) to address public safety, erosion, conservation and stewardship issues identified at the site. In an effort to direct long-range planning and to help address site management issues at the site, the CBMPT has developed the following guiding principles:

  • conservation of the property’s cultural and natural heritage values
  • safety for all individuals who visit the site
  • improved accessibility for those who wish to access the site
  • enhanced opportunities for interpretation and public education

These principles align directly with the Trust’s mandate and will guide all future work that occurs at the Badlands.

As required under the Niagara Escarpment Plan, the Trust, in consultation with the CBMPT, is developing a Master Plan for the property. To facilitate this work, the Trust has retained a consultant team to lead a comprehensive public consultation and planning process. The Master Plan will provide for an appropriate balance of resource management, environmental protection and public access to the property by setting guiding policies and delineating strategies for managing conservation and safety issues.

The Trust is grateful to the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation for their support for the conservation of the site and their assistance with interpretation.
