This week marked the deadline for input in the province potential expansion of the Greenbelt.
Essa Township sent back their input.
There is concern about protecting the rights of farmers as well as curbing growth in settlement and industrial areas.
Essa Mayor Terry Dowdall said their biggest concern was the process itself.
He said the Township feels the best people to make decisions on growth and development is the Township not the province.
He add Simcoe County and it's member municipalities have fairly stringent regulations in place now to protect the environment.
