Urban Design in Brampton
Urban Design is a collaborative and multi-disciplinary process of shaping cities and its communities. It establishes framework and processes that facilitate the development of livable, sustainable and vibrant communities.
Since 2002, Brampton has taken significant steps to achieve good urban design in public and private projects throughout the city. The City is committed in improving quality of life, attracting better businesses and creating a strong sense of place.
Brampton is also experiencing a high rate of growth and more urban and complex forms of development. An increasing proportion of growth is projected through infill and redevelopment in designated intensification areas in order for the City to achieve its long-term growth forecasts.
Council approved Strategic Plan identifies six key areas of focus to help position Brampton as an urban city that is a hub for jobs and innovation. Urban Design is foundational to these important initiatives.
