Will this turn cities into concrete jungles?
No. TOP’s proposed improvements to how we plan and build cities and towns will result in gradual intensification as the population increases. TOP’s Urban Development Act (UDA) promotes environmental and social sustainability. This will mean more trees, shared parks, and open community space in cities, which will lead to greater social connection and less social isolation. The long-term goal is to stop wasting land on unnecessary sprawl.
