What is the Grimsby Beach Study?

The Grimsby Beach Land Use Study will examine the existing conditions; particularly the unique cultural and natural heritage characteristics of Grimsby Beach, to develop an understanding of how the area may change or be impacted by growth and development.  The goal is to establish a community driven vision and principles that can provide guidance a comprehensive and implementable framework/plan that will not only guide appropriate change, but inspire it and preserve what aspects of Grimsby Beach are most valued.

While the Study will be grounded in evidence-based research and technical information, a significant component will be spent reaching out to the community and stakeholders through meaningful engagement.  The community and stakeholders will play a critical role in helping to identify issues and opportunities within the neighbourhood and work together with the Town and consulting team to build consensus on the vision.  Throughout the five phases of the study, there will be public engagement activities that seek to inform, consult and engage.
