City of Brampton - Aligning Secondary Land Use and Energy Planning to Create a New Net-Zero Neighbourhood

Communities around the world are under growing pressure to reduce their emissions to zero in less than 30 years. Most are struggling to create and implement credible energy and climate action plans. Following the successful development and approval of the city’s Community Energy and Emissions Reduction Plan (CEERP), the process of embedding the CEERP’s recommendations in many aspects of the City’s land-use and transportation planning is starting. The presentation will describe the approach underway to align land-use and energy planning in a major area of the city that will be developed in the next two decades to ultimately house 140,000 residents and host 40,000 jobs with the goal to build an effective pathway to a create a Zero Emissions Neighbourhood.

In this role he is responsible for leading the Community Energy & Emissions Reduction Plan, Sustainable Development Guidelines, Environmental Impact Review of New Development, Master Planning for Sustainability, Environmental and Sustainability Policy Development, and Sustainable Planning for Existing Communities.
