Welland River Floodplain Mapping

The Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority is in the process of updating floodplain mapping for the Welland River. An important part of this process is engaging the community, particularly those who live in the vicinity of the Welland River.

NPCA Policy Document Housekeeping Amendment No. 2

The NPCA is responsible for regulating development in Regulated Areas consisting of natural hazards (flood plains, valleyland, steep slopes, Great Lakes Shorelines) as well as wetlands and their immediate surrounding area.

To assist the NPCA in reviewing applications for development in regulated areas, the NPCA has a Policy Document that establishes the principles, objectives and policies to guide decision making. To ensure the Policy Document reflects appropriate standards, NPCA staff conduct regular reviews and propose updates where required. As part of the most recent review, NPCA staff are proposing a change to the Policy Document as it relates to septic systems near wetlands. Also being considered is a change to the preamble wording for the wetland policies to implement an NPCA Board Resolution (FA-161-19).

Please visit GETINVOLVED.NPCA.CA to find the Policy and the proposed amendments.

To provide feedback:

1. Complete the form on the portal

2. Submit questions via email to David Deluce, Senior Manager Planning and Regulations at ddeluce@npca.ca

3. Drop off written comments at 250 Thorold Road West in Welland

*The NPCA is providing a 30-day comment period for these proposed changes running from September 5 to October 7, 2019.
