What is Priority Green Clarington?

As our community grows we need to find more ways to protect our environment. Priority Green Clarington aims to promote green development. Its focus is on efficient use of energy, water, land and other resources, and taking action on climate change.

What is green development?

Green development encourages developers and builders to use practices that reduce the environmental impacts of building neighbourhoods and homes. It helps create healthier places to live, work and play.

What are we doing to achieve this priority?

We have two important projects underway:

We are working on a Green Development Standards, Guidelines and Incentives Study to establish a framework that will encourage green development practices in all new neighbourhoods. This involves developing policies, criteria, approval measures and potential incentives for developers and builders.

We are also putting green building into practice with a Green Demonstration Project. We have partnered with three local builders to show the potential impact of building green homes. The builders have constructed six "beyond code" demonstration homes. They were built with energy and water saving measures that go beyond what is required in Ontario's Building Code. Each home has been sold to residents and is being monitored to track potential energy, water, greenhouse gas and cost savings.
