Rehabilitation Master Plan

The Town's Official Plan requires the preparation of a Rehabilitation Master Plan (RMP) for areas in the Town of Caledon with a high concentration of mineral aggregate operations. The RMP will consider how to restore and repurpose lands with many aggregate pits that border each other and that are within a geographical area for future development while taking community interests into account.

Aggregate areas

The following 10 areas in Caledon have been identified to have a high concentration of mineral aggregate operations:

  • Alton West
  • Mono Mills
  • Belfountain (sand and gravel and bedrock resource)
  • The Grange
  • Inglewood
  • Orangeville
  • Melville
  • Caledon (sand and gravel and bedrock resource)
  • Caledon East/Centreville
  • Humber

The Belfountain and Caledon sand and gravel resource areas (Areas 5a and 6a on the map) have been selected to be the first areas of Caledon to have a RMP. This RMP will serve as the model for all the other areas in Caledon.

RMP process

A two-phased process is proposed for the development of the RMP.

Phase 1 involves:

  • Engagement with key stakeholders for information and input
  • Developing a Terms of Reference for the preparation of the RMP

Phase 2 involves:

  • Development of the actual RMP
  • Creating a strategic plan for implementing the RMP
  • Creating an RMP Consultation Plan

The Town is working with land owners, indigenous groups, key stakeholders and members of the public to develop this first (model) RMP for Caledon.
