Creating Guelph’s urban design manual
Guelph is growing, and the way we are growing is changing. As more people come to live and work in Guelph, urban design plays an important role in planning and developing more intensified and complete mixed-used neighbourhoods.
The goal of Guelph’s Urban Design Manual is to provide a thoughtful and consistent approach to urban design in our city.
To create the manual, we’ve reviewed urban design policy and best practices, and consulted with industry and community stakeholders. About 200 people participated in the manual development process. When it is complete, the manual will include three volumes:
- Volume 1: Urban design vision
- Volume 2: Urban design action plan
- Volume 3: Urban design standards and directions (further information below)
Urban Design Manual
On November 13, 2017 the recommended Urban Design Manual (volumes 1 and 2) and supporting staff report was approved by Council.
- Volume 1: Urban design vision (November 2017)
- Volume 2: Urban design action plan (November 2017)
