Urban Design Guidelines


In recognition of the Province’s emphasis on urban intensification, and increasing developer interest in pursuing mid-rise and tall buildings in Milton, the Town is proactively developing design guidelines to aid the integration of these developments into the community.

By clarifying the Town’s expectations for the design of mid-rise and tall buildings, it is intended that the guidelines will assist with the interpretation of Official Plan policies and provide a clear design direction for development proposals. Developers will be encouraged to have regard to the guidelines and Development Review staff will use them to evaluate development proposals.

In November 2017, Planning staff presented a report to Council regarding Urban Design Guidelines for mid-rise and tall buidings.  This Report outlined the work that is being undertaken in-house to publish guidance documents for the design of mid-rise and tall buildings.
