Cleantech Commons at Trent University in Peterborough. 85 acres of possibility, designed for innovation. Creating next-generation startups. Making Peterborough – making Canada – a global leader in cleantech innovation.

Plans for the 85-acre innovation and research park site near Trent University include trails, roads, sewers and water services.

Quoting the City of Peterborough, the article says: “The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry approved the Wetland Evaluation Report that was completed on behalf of the City of Peterborough“.

“The site for Cleantech Commons was designed assuming that the wetland next to the planned innovation and employment park would be designated provincially significant. The necessary studies were completed to determine appropriate buffers and boundaries – and the studies were reviewed by Otonabee Conservation.”
