"Good Development" Project
$198,000 (2 years)
The Pembina Institute will build on their previous work on 'location-efficient' development to advocate for improvements in the Growth Plan as part of the 2015 Review. They will conduct research into incentives and policies to support affordable, compact growth in the Greater Toronto Area, with an emphasis on suburban areas; and collaborate with progressive developers to build public and government support for such policies as part of the 2015 Review of the Growth Plan. The Institute will also provide input into the review of the Big Move plan to ensure that transit development supports the goals of the Greenbelt and Growth Plans. This work will reduce multiple pressures on the Greenbelt and ensure that agricultural and natural land remains protected for future generations.
