Northwest Brantford Municipal Services Expansion

The Study

The City of Brantford has initiated a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (MCEA) for the Municipal Services Expansion in northwest Brantford. It is to provide and improve municipal service infrastructure to the Designated Greenfield Area development, according to the policy and principles in the Official Plan. The need for expanding the municipal systems was identified in the City’s 2020 Master Servicing Plan (MSP) Update 2051 Amendment and the Transportation Master Plan (TMP) 2051 Update. It is required to meet planned growth, including the areas within the City’s new settlement area. 

This study will evaluate various alternatives for the service infrastructures, which include trunk watermain and trunk sewer extensions, road widenings, and stormwater management in and adjacent to the study area.

The Process

The study will be conducted in accordance with Schedule B and Schedule C project requirements of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (October 2000, as amended in 2007, 2011, and 2015), which is approved under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act.

The MCEA process includes public and agency consultations, the evaluation of alternatives, assessment of potential environmental effects of the proposed works and identification of reasonable measures to mitigate any potential adverse impacts.
