Density by Design

Good design policies for buildings can help make housing more affordable, promote sustainability, and create lively places in Kingston. They can also help protect our city's heritage.

The Issues & Options Report is based on what we learned from density by design consultations. It contributed to the creation of policies intended to shape the vision for the future of mid-rise and tall buildings.

Project updates 

In November 2020, we updated the Williamsville Main Street Study, introducing new land use policies and zoning rules. City Council approved these changes on December 1, 2020. An appeal was filed, extending the Interim Control Bylaw. 

In June 2021, we reached a settlement to resolve an appeal. As a result, the Interim Control Bylaw is no longer in effect, and the updated rules are now in use for development applications.
