Have your say on the proposed High Performance Development Standard
December 7, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
The City is developing a High Performance Development Standard that will support sustainable and resilient design in new developments. The proposed High Performance Development Standard seeks to apply minimum performance measures to new development through the review and approval of site plan and plan of subdivision applications. It includes metrics that will protect our environment, public health and safety, and respond to climate change. The High Performance Development Standard will help the City to meet the sustainable and resilient design objectives in the Official Plan as well as contribute to the greenhouse gas reduction targets. The largest share of Ottawa’s greenhouse gas emissions (46 per cent) come from buildings. New buildings that are designed to be energy efficient will reduce emissions and save on costly retrofits in the future. Visit Engage Ottawa to find out more on the measures and phasing and provide your feedback.
