Section 37 allows your local government to set rules around negotiating with developers when they ask for permission to build with more height or density. The community can negotiate for local community benefits like: providing affordable housing, replacing rental units, protecting heritage buildings, adding cultural centres, streetscape improvements, adding public art, and more.
