Complete Streets for Canada

policy and design hub for building safe and inviting streets for all

Brantford, Ontario

Complete Streets Approach

Brantford, Ontario includes Complete Streets approaches in both its Transportation Master Plan (TMP) and its Official Plan. Brantford's updated 2014 Transportation Master Plan incorporates a Complete Streets policy to accommodate all modes, abilities and users, and to "assist the City in developing a coordinated and integrated transportation system that provides realistic alternative travel options to the auto, thereby creating a City that is truly accessible to all" (p. 44). The TMP also includes a schedule of proposed Active Transportation projects to be undertaken by 2031 (p. 44-47).

Brantford's 2016 Official Plan briefly suggests Complete Streets designs as a strategy to be used in facilitating pedestrian movement (p. 9-2), but it does not require the application of Complete Streets guidelines across the municipality.
