City Building and Place Making Guidelines for Brantford
SGL is preparing Urban Design Guidelines to reflect the City’s ongoing commitment to good urban design and provide a consistent baseline for assessing development proposals, particularly the public realm. The Guidelines will support the Official Plan policies, while also providing additional guidance for the expansion area and additional details for the built form and public realm expectations for the City. As part of the public engagement 3D modelling has been used to help show participants what areas of the City could look like in the future. Some of the project highlights include, extensive public engagement, completing city wide guidelines, guidelines for intensification within the city, and guidelines that will support the new Official Plan and the expansion lands.
