Preferred Option Refinement

The Development Framework Plan was used to prepare a series of parameter plans for the following:

  • Access 
  • Green infrastructure and open space 
  • Land use (this should be read in conjunction with the land use budget which quantifies the amount of each land use) 
  • Housing density 
  • Building heights 
  • Order of development 

The purpose of these parameter plans is to aid the assessment of the impact of these proposals. The Strategic Development Framework Plan brings together the various components of the individual Parameter Plans.
