Planning and Acting for Sustainability in Fletchers Creek
The Fletchers Creek Sustainable Neighbourhood Action Plan (SNAP) is a plan developed with your community to make the Fletchers Creek neighbourhood more sustainable and ready for a changing climate. Together, we’re beautifying the neighbourhood, deepening connections with nature and protecting the environment.
Your Neighbourhood Action Plan
The Fletchers Creek Sustainable Neighbourhood Action Plan (SNAP) was developed through a collaboration amongst:
- Credit Valley Conservation
- City of Brampton
- Region of Peel
- Local residents, community members and leaders
The action-oriented plan addresses local environmental challenges and community interests. It advances the sustainability objectives of project partners at the neighbourhood scale, including Brampton 2040 Vision: Living the Mosaic and Brampton Grow Green Environmental Master Plan. It guides the Fletchers Creek neighbourhood towards urban renewal and climate resilience.
The plan was endorsed by Brampton City Council and CVC Board of Directors in 2019.
Key Features of the Plan
Fletchers Creek is a green, climate-change ready neighbourhood supported by beautiful, healthy spaces and championed by caring neighbours.
- Create a healthy and diverse landscape

The SNAP focuses on five key themes:

The Plan outlines 27 recommended actions, including public realm enhancements, stewardship on private land and community initiatives.

The Plan also provides a framework for measuring progress and shared success.
At the heart of the Action Plan is a collective, forward-looking vision for the neighbourhood developed in consultation with the community and project partners.
