Land Use Planning

Climate change is linked to key policy areas in all levels of government. Land-use decisions, such as compact, location-efficient communities, urban design features that support public order transit and active transportation, community energy planning, green infrastructure (low-impact development) and stormwater management techniques can all impact the production of greenhouse gas(GHG) emissions, and how municipalities adapt to the weather-related (warmer and wetter) impacts of climate change. Development Plans, Secondary Plans and municipal Zoning By-Laws can are all tools to help prepare for a variety of anticipated climate change risks. The new Provincial Growth Plan (May, 2017 has an enhanced and significant role in land-use planning. Read more on the Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe, 2017 here.

Considerations: What do our communities look like? What land use patterns characterize the area? What types of buildings do we live, work and play in? How should we accommodate growth?
