comprehensively planned detached housing developments /

“This paper describes four comprehensively planned developments that have been completed recently: Greenfield Estates - Edmonton, Alberta; HUDAC, Mark VIII Houses - Winnipeg, Manitoba; Central Park - Bramalea, Ontario; Beacon Hill North Courthouses - Ottawa, Ontario. These projects are not intended to represent ideal examples of this form of development but rather they have been selected as an indication of the variety of approaches that can be employed in terms of the physical layout, scale and form of tenure. Though in the strict sense of the definition the housing structures in two of these projects are not completely detached it is felt for all intents and purposes they can be considered as a form of detached housing. The brief description and analysis provided for each project is based on information provided from our Branch office. It is hoped this material will serve as a useful reference to both proponents and reviewers of future comprehensively planned developments by providing opportunity to assess the advantages and disadvantages of some existing solutions and we look forward to receiving any comments individuals may have on this material"--Introd., p. 2.
