Community Safety and Well-Being in Halton: A Plan for Collaboration and Action - Community consultation

Halton Region and the Halton Regional Police Service have developed a draft Community Safety and Well-Being Plan for public consultation. In June and July, 2017, Halton Region and the Halton Regional Police Service gathered input from residents and community partners at four community consultations, in Burlington, Halton Hills, Milton and Oakville. Feedback was also provided in June, July and August through an online survey. Those still wishing to offer comments on the Plan, or identify community safety and well-being issues that should be addressed through the Plan, can email their comments to safetyandwell-being@halton.ca.

Why a community safety and well-being plan for Halton?

  • As Halton continues to grow, it is important to take steps to ensure that we continue to be a safe and healthy community, support vulnerable populations and are well-positioned to respond to emerging safety and well-being issues. The Plan is a key step to achieve these objectives.

What can I find in the Community Safety and Well-Being Plan?

The Plan includes:
  • an overview of community safety and well-being planning as well as a number of examples of initiatives that contribute to the health, safety and well-being of Halton residents;
  • an approach to enhance how Halton Region and the Halton Regional Police Service work with our partners to identify and address key safety and well-being issues; and
  • Five Directions that will guide community safety and well-being planning in Halton. 

What are the next steps?

  • In June and July, 2017, Halton Region and the Halton Regional Police Service completed community consultation sessions in Burlington, Halton Hills, Milton and Oakville.
  • Feedback was also gathered from residents and community partners in June, July and August through an online survey.
  • Those still wishing to offer comments on the Plan, or identify community safety and well-being issues that should be addressed through the Plan, can email their comments to safetyandwell-being@halton.ca.
  • Input collected through the consultations and survey will be used to inform the development of a final plan, which will be presented to Regional Council in fall 2017.
