TOWN OF COLLINGWOOD
URBAN DESIGN MANUAL 
 
Given the complexity of the subject matter, and interconnectivity of professional disciplines associated with Urban Design, there is no universallyaccepted definition of Urban Design. The Town of Collingwood has taken direction from the Canadian Institute of Planners, Urban Design InterestGroup, and adopted the definition written by one of the contemporary authorities in this domain, Jonathan Barnett, for the purposes of developingthis Urban Design Manual:
Urban design is the generally accepted name for the process of giving physical design direction to urban growth, conservation, and change. It is understood to include landscape as well as buildings, both preservation and new construction, and rural  areas as well as cities.
Throughout the process of crafting the Urban Design Manual, staff have also facilitated understanding of this complex subject with stakeholders bydescribing Urban Design in terms of how it relates to the built environment people experience every day, specifically:
The definition of space through the careful arrangement and design of architecture, landscaping, and use to create livable places for people.
The policy direction for the development of the Urban Design Manual is diverse, and includes: The Provincial Policy Statement; Places to Grow:Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe; County of Simcoe Official Plan; Town of Collingwood Official Plan; Town of Collingwood StrategicPlan; The Sustainable Community Plan for the Town of Collingwood; Town of Collingwood Leisure Services Master Plan; and, the Town ofCollingwood’s Active Transportation Priority Resolution.The requirements of the Urban Design Manual have been established to direct developments in ways that integrate their various components toachieve projects that function well; are aesthetically pleasing; support community health; and, improve the overall livability of Collingwood for thebenefits of residents and visitors alike.
