An ambitious plan to turn the Britannia Farm into a top-notch, outdoor education facility was approved by Peel District School Board trustees Monday, Dec. 12.

Emily Reisman, a partner with planning consulting firm Urban Strategies Inc., presented the refreshed master plan for the 200-acre site — bordered by Hurontario Street, Bristol and McLaughlin roads and Matheson Boulevard — at the regular board meeting.

She noted several proposed features such as a new field centre, a trail network, wetland restoration and an outdoor gathering place, known as Britannia Common.
