Affordable Housing Land Use Policy Review: Working Paper

Determining suitable locations for affordable housing must balance quality of life considerations for both the occupants of the units and the surrounding community to ensure that healthy community environments are developed and sustained. This recognizes that each affordable housing project must be reviewed on its own merits for the specific geographic location for which it is proposed.

Developing land use policy and processes that promote well situated affordable housing units that suit the unique neighbourhood characteristics is an important objective of land use planning. While providing additional affordable housing units is the primary objective of the work that is being conducted in this Land Use Policy Review (LUPR), it must remain in balance with The City’s objective to provide quality living environments for all citizens.
