Sustainable Neighbourhood Development: Practical Solutions to Common Challenges


Sustainable neighbourhoods — dense, walkable, mixed-use communities — offer many economic, social and environmental benefits. To encourage this kind of development, municipalities across Canada must overcome common challenges including strict regulations, financial barriers and more.

FCM’s new guidebook, Sustainable Neighbourhood Development: Practical Solutions to Common Challenges, shows you how to apply strategies that drive sustainable development, including:

  • Financial solutions, such as partnerships, incentives and green loans
  • Supportive policies, flexible regulations and faster approval processes
  • Marketing to showcase the benefits of sustainable neighbourhoods to home buyers and developers
  • Contracting requirements to help ensure you get the results you want

Developed by FCM’s Green Municipal Fund, the guide offers a checklist, case studies and resource list to help you re-imagine your municipality’s approach to community development.
