Municipal Class Environmental Assessment for the Colborne Street (East) Slope Stabilization 

The City of Brantford has initiated a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Schedule 'C' for a section of Colborne Street.

What is a "Class Environmental Assessment"?

A Class Environmental Assessment is a document that sets out a standardized planning process for which the applicant is responsible. A class environmental assessment is approved under the Environmental Assessment Act and applies to projects that are carried out routinely and have predictable environmental effects that can be readily managed.

The study area includes approximately 1,200 metres along Colborne Street between Linden Avenue and Johnson Road, including the embankment extending to the Grand River. This study is intended to identify and evaluate alternatives, as well as to develop concepts to improve, manage or mitigate slope stability concerns in the study area.

An Environmental Study Report will be prepared and posted for public review and comment once the study has been completed. The report will detail the planning process and provide the preferred alternative. A Notice of Completion will be issued at that time.
