Built Boundary for the Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe, 2006 Limites de construction pour la région élargie du Golden Horseshoe

Abstract:
The built boundary identifies built-up urban areas across the Greater Golden Horseshoe. It is a line that reflects what was built and on the ground when the Growth Plan came into effect in June 2006. It is a fixed line and is an important implementation and monitoring tool for the Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe. The built boundary will allow the province and others to measure intensification and redevelopment within the built-up area, and also allow us to monitor suburban development outside the built-up area. The built boundary was released in its final form on April 2, 2008, along with the methodology used to derive it.
