Looking through Google Maps, isn't Leitrim (and this proposed development) inside the Greenbelt?

How did these developments come to be if so? I thought it was a big "no-no" to ever build anything in the Greenbelt?

No, none of these were ever in the Greenbelt. Historically the south edge of the Greenbelt was Leitrim Rd.

When Findlay Creek was developed there was a section of land protected from development because it is a provincially significant wetland (Leitrim Wetland). The NCC now shows the Leitrim Wetland as part of the Greenbelt in their maps although it is owned by the South Nation Conservation, not the NCC.

Urbandale is now advertising the new Leitrim development as "Cowan's Grove"

I know this was discussed before somewhere but I am not sure where. A crane was erected over the weekend for the replacement development on Heron Road at Heron Gate. This project is going ahead.

If I end up with 80s CanCon earworms, I am not responsible for my actions!
