Increasing Availability and Mix

Ensuring everyone has a home starts by fostering housing diversity; a mix of single-family homes, multiresidential homes, apartments, and townhouses in a variety of settings. It also means encouraging housing that is compact, near amenities and affordable. In Bruce County, we define affordable housing as costing less than 30% of household income. Planning guides the long-range supply of residential land, the type and density of residential buildings, and the mix of housing in a community; it considers placing housing in locations where individuals can access jobs more easily, taking into account infrastructure requirements, and building communities with amenities to support health and wellbeing.

Good planning decisions now can have a positive impact on housing diversity and availability over the next 25 years.
