Greenspace Planning

TRCA employs best management practices and environmental stewardship – through the establishment of management and master plans – to preserve and protect conservation lands.

TRCA properties require regular planning and management to ensure the best possible land care. Utilizing information gathered as part of the Monitoring & Assessment program, the Planning & Consultation group directs and organizes implementation actions through the development of management and master plans. Typically, master plans are completed for conservation areas/parks, while management plans are completed for all other TRCA lands.

Plans regardless of their scope evaluate the property based on relevant information and policies, existing resource inventories, environmental conditions, site limitations and opportunities. In terms of public use, master plans incorporate a detailed nature-based recreation plan, while management plans usually only include a trail plan. Throughout the planning process, Conservation Land Care staff collaborate with other TRCA business units and divisions, the public, and our municipal and regional partners to ensure project success.

Implementation of plans are managed by our Operations team.
