On October 28, 2004 the Provincial Government introduced two Bills which are intended to implement the Province’s widely publicized "Greenbelt" and "Places to Grow" initiatives. Bill 135, the Greenbelt Act, 2004, provides the legislative framework for the much anticipated Greenbelt Plan, which aims to protect over 2 million acres of land in the Greater Golden Horseshoe area. Bill 136, the Places to Grow Act, 2004, provides the legal foundation for growth plans within the Greater Golden Horseshoe.
