Technical Definitions and Criteria for Key Natural Heritage Features in the Natural Heritage System of the Protected Countryside Area

Some of the land within the Greenbelt is designated as Protected Countryside. In the Greenbelt Plan, the Protected Countryside designation is further divided into three types of geographic specific policy areas: the Agricultural System, Settlement Areas and the Natural System. The Natural System can be further divided into the Water Resources System and the Natural Heritage System.

This technical paper will assist those implementing the policies designed to protect key natural heritage features within the Natural Heritage System.
