Promote Healthy and Age-Friendly Built Environments
Outcome: Increased proportion of development applications that meet the healthy development criteria.
Measurement: Number of approved development applications that meet or exceed a pass score on the local health assessment tool
There is a connection between health and the built environment. Designing communities that promote and support active and sustainable transportation will have a positive impact on the overall health of Peel residents at all ages and stages of life.
In 2017, we:
- Received Provincial approval on Regional Official Plan Amendment 27 (ROPA 27) – Health and the Built Environment, Age-Friendly Planning and Technical and Administrative Updates.
- Worked in partnership with Brampton, Caledon and Mississauga to begin implementing ROPA 27.
- Determined that of the 40 development applications that underwent a health assessment, 68% met or exceeded a pass score.
