Building Additions, New Homes and Replacement Dwellings

Brampton’s  older mature neighbourhoods have developed with unique characteristics and identities that continue to attract residents. As they evolve and change, it has become increasingly important to preserve and enhance these unique identities – in other words, to manage change. 

On September 10, 2014, City Council introduced additional standards to ensure that proposed residential additions and replacement dwellings within older mature neighbourhoods are compatible with the existing character of the surrounding area.
