Residential intensification within appropriate areas is encouraged for the effective accommodation of growth in the Municipality of Clarington. Such intensification should occur in a manner that strengthens the existing urban structure, promotes reinvestment in brownfield sites, and leverages infrastructure investment. During the Official Plan Review process, best practices for intensification will be evaluated and areas in Clarington considered favourable for intensification will be identified. Amendments to land use policies and designations as well as potential incentives to support intensification will also be proposed.
