King's Green Development Standards

The ThinKING Green: Sustainable Development Program was endorsed by Council on May 13, 2024. ThinKING Green is a new green development standards program for the Township which expands upon and replaces the Sustainable King: Green Development Standards Program. Sustainable King was adopted by Township Council on November 16, 2020 and came into effect on February 1, 2021. 

The ThinKING Green: Sustainable Development Program has been developed to expand upon the Township's sustainability initiatives. The program establishes metrics that will be used to evaluate the sustainable performance of new development in King Township. The metrics established through this program represent the vision for the Township and the Township’s overarching goal of creating a sustainable, resilient and healthy community for all.

ThinKING Green will come into effect for all Site Plan and Draft Plan of Subdivision Applications submitted on or after September 1, 2024. To learn more about the development application review process and to determine whether ThinKING Green is applicable to your development concept please use the Ask King Planning Inquiry Service, or visit the Development Applications webpage.
