​​​​​​​The City of Brampton has initiated the Urban Design Review Panel (UDRP) on a pilot basis, for two years starting March 2018, following the endorsement of the proposal by the Planning and Development Committee in December 2017.

The UDRP will help in achieving design excellence on new, complex and major projects bringing in added value and professional expertise, complementing the City’s design review process.

Applications subject to the UDRP Process

​The UDRP evaluates selected development applications in design priority areas, such as Central Area, Mobility Hubs, Major Station Areas and Designated Intensification Corridors.

The forms of development subject to UDRP review focus on major high-density and mixed-use development, large institutional uses, transit-oriented developments, important parks and key streetscape applications, as well as major public projects. The UDRP also evaluates applications with significant public realm impacts as a result of their location, scale, form or architectural quality.​​​​
