When it comes to building out, surprisingly Brampton still has room to grow.
According to a recent report by Ryerson’s City Building Institute, Peel Region is expected to go from 1.46 million people to 1.97 million over the next 25 years, but Brampton is taking in most of that growth…at 64 per cent.
With more people expected to enter Brampton, more residential as well as service needs will be required. That is why it’s no surprise to see that a public meeting scheduled this month by the city’s planning and development committee will have eight development applications on the docket.
City residents will be able to look at the plans in an open house at the City Hall Atrium, before proceeding to the planning meeting to get the full presentation.
