The Preliminary Policy Directions are more detailed policy ideas for the New Official Plan, building on the 5 Big Moves. They recommend:

  • a new framework of urban designations intended to better address neighbourhood context,
  • a proposed approach to growth management with intensification focusing on low-rise building forms along corridors and nodes,
  • improved support for active transportation and better alignment of land use and transportation policies, revisions to the employment area policies,
  • integration of public health,
  • climate change mitigation and climate change adaptation policies throughout the Plan,
  • and revised policies for the rural area that will support rural and village character and rural economic development.
