The National Capital Commission (NCC) invites the public to share their comments on the draft of the new Gatineau Park Master Plan. This online consultation will be available until September 20.
The Gatineau Park Master Plan is a document that guides the long-term planning, use and management of Gatineau Park. It is reviewed every 10 years, to ensure that it takes into account past experience, new issues and regulations, and international best practices in the management of natural environments.
This is the final stage of updating this plan, which was last refreshed in 2005. Over the previous consultation phases, the first of which was launched in 2017, there have been several opportunities to contribute to the direction of this plan. Public input collected during each phase of consultation is summarized in a report.
The feedback collected during this phase will be taken into account in drafting the final version of the plan, which will be submitted to the Board of Directors for approval in January 2021.
