Abstract: A collaborative project between industry, environmental groups, and government resulted in a bioregional plan for the rehabilitation of multiple aggregate sites in the Township of Uxbridge, Ontario. The research aims were to extract the industry’s best practices from the grey literature and to apply these practices, along with the bioregional plan goals, to conceptual landscape designs that were then used as an engagement tool for landscape stakeholders. The best practices, the bioregional plan goals, and inventory and analysis of the landscape were synthesized to develop alternative landscape scenarios. Stakeholders reviewed and discussed these scenarios, revealing different values and perspectives. Discussion and assessment lead to increased common ground and continued development of bioregional landscape solutions. This process can be a model for rehabilitation planning in other aggregate-rich municipalities.
