What happens when we put politics ahead of good planning and build Fewer Homes?
WE RISK NOT BEING ABLE TO MEET REAL DEMAND
Ontario’s population is projected to grow by 30.3 per cent over the next 25 years. Out-of-date zoning means we aren’t optimizing opportunities to build and meet the increased demand in urban centres.Share on FacebookShare on Twitter
WE REDUCE SUPPLY MAKING IT HARDER FOR PEOPLE TO AFFORD A HOME
Every new housing option – from condo to single family home – has had a price increase in the last year. Fewer floors means fewer homes on the market when we need them. This drives up prices and makes it less affordable for people to buy a home.Share on FacebookShare on Twitter
WE LOSE REAL JOBS
A typical 20-storey building represents 500 jobs. We lose the opportunity to optimize employment when there are fewer homes built in those communities.Share on FacebookShare on Twitter
WE AREN’T INTENSIFYING TO SUPPORT TRANSIT INVESTMENT
Ontario is investing over $100 billion in new transit and transportation infrastructure. Fewer homes means less density and lower ridership making it harder to plan, operate and sustain transit.Share on FacebookShare on Twitter
WE WILL NOT MEET PROVINCIAL PLANNING FOR COMMUNITIES
The Provincial Policy Statement and Growth Plan require that we optimize housing to create places to live, work and play in our communities. Less housing makes it harder to create these planned communities in our cities.Share on FacebookShare on Twitter
