Bremner - complete communities
Complete communities meet needs for daily living throughout an entire lifetime, by providing convenient access to a mix of jobs, local services, diversity of housing and community infrastructure. Individuals can work, live and play within the same community and access a variety of transportation choices including walking, cycling, taking public transportation, or driving.
The provision of daily needs is essential to a complete community. Individuals should be able to access their day-to-day needs including groceries, recreation and childcare, within their community. Services within a community should reflect a diverse range of users, ensuring inclusivity.
