Infill and Replacement Housing Urban Design Guidelines
SGL Planning & Design is currently working on finalizing Urban Design Guidelines as part of a study examining Infill and Replacement Housing in Established Neighbourhoods for the City of Pickering. The purpose of the Guidelines is to provide design guidance that helps future development and infill in existing neighborhoods reflect the character and uniqueness of different neighbourhoods. Through the study and public engagement visioning sessions, the framework for the guidelines were developed. The guidelines are a clear, concise set of design guidance that communicate to the public, builders and developer and City staff how a new house or addition should be designed to fit the character of the neighbourhood. There is a checklist provided as part of the document for reference and to help staff with review of development applications.
