ACC Toronto Section input on the proposed Niagara Escarpment Plan

Climbers in Ontario should be aware that a revision to the Niagara Escarpment Plan is being developed by the government agencies with oversight of the Escarpment lands. Certain changes to the plan have been proposed by the planners that could significantly impact Ontario climbers access to traditional climbing areas, particularly those in designated Nature Preserves. One such area potentially at risk is Lions Head.

Please read the Section's input to this planning process by clicking the following link: ACC letter on proposed changes
