Streetscape Character Analysis (SCA)
The SCA zoning By-law went in effect on June 2015. All developments and additions covered by the Mature Neighborhoods zoning overlay require a SCA study. If required, the SCA is typically be the first step of the project planning and design process. Blueprint can prepare all aspects of the SCA study including the zoning requirements for front & corner side yard, access & parking and front door configuration. Once the Streetscape Character Analysis is complete, we follow up with site plan options to best fit your lot.
