What is the Project?

The Tri-Country Green Development Standards (GDS) project is a joint effort among Grey, Dufferin, and Wellington Counties (the Counties) to create unified Green Development Standards that are informed by best practices, existing building credentials programs, and input from stakeholder consultation. The Counties will work closely with member municipalities.

The Tri-County Rural Green Development Standards will establish a consistent framework across the Counties making it easier for the development industry to understand and implement in their projects. The document will incorporate standards and guidelines that can be applied through all phases of development planning applications right through to construction.
