The County has approved a pair of amendments to their Land Use Bylaw.
One of them allows for the inclusion of medium density residential districts in new urban developments.
Planning Manager Nick Lapp says this will allow for more flexibility in the design and development of new neighbourhoods.
“Really provide for a variety of house choice, and residential type of building in a medium density area with different types of semi-detached row housing, duplex types of development.”
The other amendment saw the inclusion of a new village centre mixed use district.
Lapp says both changes were made to help with the development of the Clairmont Heights, after the structure plan for that area was approved last year.
