Green Development Framework – Update and Program Implementation

Green Development Framework – Update and Program Implementation
  • Organization: Municipality of Clarington
  • Location: Bowmanville, Ontario, Canada
  • Deadline: May 30, 2024

The aim of the GDF is to guide green development to align with the Official Plan priorities over the next thirty years and to promote environmentally responsible land development practices as Clarington continues to grow. In doing so, the GDF will contribute to furthering the development of a sustainable and healthy community.

The overall intent is to update Clarington’s GDF, including expanding it to encompass all types of new development in Clarington, and complete the implementation of this framework. This includes the following elements:

  • Criteria that may be used for evaluating the environmental sustainability of proposed new development;
  • Municipal policies, by-laws, development guidelines and procedures required to successfully achieve the vision of the GDF;
  • A process for reviewing and evaluating development applications for conformity with the green development criteria;
  • Supporting checklists, procedures, a guidebook, training materials, and other supporting resources;
  • An incentive program to encourage “Better than Code” design;
  • A communication strategy to educate stakeholders, including staff, agencies, and the development community, throughout the project and in the implementation phase; and
  • An implementation and monitoring strategy.

Refer to the request for proposal for more information regarding this project.
