​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Coordinated, Integrated and Strategic​​

The Integrated Downtown Plan (IDP) is a roadmap for action - coordinating Downtown Brampton’s many ongoing initiatives and infrastructure projects. The IDP is anticipated to guide future growth and strategic investment till the year 2051.

Building on the bold initiatives outlined in the Brampton 2040 Vision, the IDP will ad​here to the same guiding principles of inclusivity, innovation, and sustainability. It will help coordinate infrastructure upgrades, urban design, land use, and programming interventions - positioning Brampton as a pivotal economic driver, regional cultural hub, and innovation district.

Council prioritized the need to unlock Downtown Brampton’s potential – advocating change and securing the City’s future. This includes improving livability and prosperity by ensuring local employment opportunities, neighbourhood services and programs, quality public spaces, and co-ordinating a full range of active capital projects.

Aligned with the Brampton 2040 Vision an​​d Term of Council Priorities, Downtown Brampton is undergoing a transformation. As the historic urban city centre, Downtown Brampton (Secondary Plan Area 7) showcases a unique natural, cultural, and built heritage. It is geographically situated south o​​f Vodden Street, west of the Etobicoke Creek, north of Main Street and Harold Str​eet, and east of McLaughlin Road.

The IDP consists of eight components as illustrated in the graphic.

The City hosted a three-day Design Charrette in July 2022 to develop a vision illustrating the long-term future for its downtown. The Design Charrette built upon the work completed as part of the Brampton 2040 Vision, Brampton Plan (new Official Plan), and current Term of Council Priorities.

The City hosted a virtual Open House in Marc​h 2023 to provide an overview of the outcomes of the Design Charrette held in July 2022 and discuss next steps to evolve the visioning of Downtown Brampton. The City is undertaking a Public Realm Plan and Streetscape Manual for the Downtown that will guide the design of streets and public spaces.​
