With Mississauga at the end of its greenfield development phase, new growth is being accommodated through infilling and redevelopment of existing sites. Back to Back and Stacked Townhouses are becoming a more prominent form of development.
The City is receiving increased numbers of development applications for these built forms. To address this trend, the Planning and Building Department is preparing Urban Design Guidelines for Back to Back and Stacked Townhouses to set out design criteria for this type of development. Staff are also reviewing the existing Zoning By-law regulations (RM9) to determine what changes to the Zoning By-law are necessary to achieve the City's vision for these housing types.
