Seaton's Place Making Sustainable Design Guidelines
Sorensen Gravely Lowes in association with The Planning Partnership was in charge of the coordination and development of the sustainable urban design guidelines that deliver a compact, walkable transit-oriented community. Seaton's Sustainable Place-Making Guidelines relies on sustainable urban design guidelines, enhancement initiatives and a point system to achieve sustainable benchmarks in the development of this new community. This document sets out guideline standards that must be met in order for the draft plan or site plan application to be â€˜Certifiedâ€™ as part of the final approach process. The enhancement system is an important tool to encourage higher order sustainable initiatives as set out in the Seaton Official Plan Amendment. The Sustainable Place-Making Guidelines was approved by City Council in April 2011.
