On Wednesday, January 31, 2018, our City Council adopted the Long Branch Neighbourhood Character Guideleins with the following amendment by Councillor Grimes.
“That the guidelines be used by home builders, the community, City staff, committees and appeal bodies to provide direction in their decision making as they develop plans, review applications for redevelopment and/or enhance the public realm. ”
The Long Branch Neighbourhood Character Guidelines are an important document that will encourage Urban Design excellence on a neighbourhood level where dwellings fit harmoniously with the established character. This document was a result of a pilot project initiated by Community Council. All stakeholders were invited to participate in this two year project and the resulting document was a culmination of efforts between Stakeholders, City Council, City Planning and executed by SvN Architects and Planners.
Please take the time to familiarize yourself with this document and share it with your Long Branch neighbours who may be renovating or constructing a new home.
