Where won’t the Infill Strategy apply?

The Strategy won’t deal with other policy areas within the Complete Communities Direction Strategy (e.g. New Communities, Recent Communities, Mixed Use Corridors and Centres, the Downtown) and within areas governed by a Secondary (neighbourhood) Plan By-law.

What type of development will it apply to?

This project will apply to small scale infill development such as single family homes, duplexes/side-by-sides, triplexes, fourplexes, and small scale apartments (typically less than 4 stories).
