The Urban Design Guidelines for the Town of New Tecumseth are now complete! The guidelines were updated in response to the significant growth the town is experiencing, which is only expected to increase in the coming years. The updated urban design guidelines provide a foundation to guide development, creating a context-sensitive approach to infill, intensification, and redevelopment.

High-quality urban design promotes economic, social, and environmental benefits, and influences how people experience a place as well as how they move around. The guide recommends how to create a more accessible, inviting, and memorable public realm that will promote active lifestyles, foster social interactions, and encourage inclusiveness. The ultimate goal of the guidelines is to create a sustainable, healthy community.
