Walkable, diverse neighbourhoods will add homes, attract new industries and generate jobs in the district while green technologies and net-zero emissions targets establish this community as a leader in environmental protection and stewardship.
Against the backdrop of one of the largest granite monoliths in the world, intertidal waters surrounding the peninsula create a rich spawning ground for fish and a harbour for local birds and wildlife.
