Planning for Restoration

We own and manage two former aggregate sites in the Town of Caledon – Pinchin Pit and the Capstone parcel, formerly called the Flaherty Pit, which is a part of Charles Sauriol Conservation Area. Our goal is to restore these properties and transform them into future Credit Valley Parks.

Project Overview

We’re undertaking a Restoration Feasibility Study together with the Region of Peel to evaluate the feasibility of enhanced restoration for these two properties.

We’re in the early phases of developing the study. Check back for updates on this project.
