Andrew Davidge MCIP RPP
Andrew Davidge is a Senior Urban Planner at GPA with a substantial body of work on healthy communities and urban revitalization. He has provided advice to municipalities across the GTA and Ontario on the use of planning tools – including OP policies, zoning by-laws, CIPs, design guidelines – to meet broad city-building objectives at an area- and municipality-wide scale. Recently, he led the development of a comprehensive planning framework for the Sherway Area in west Toronto which incorporated land use, urban design, transportation and servicing considerations into a long term plan to transition a retail-oriented area to a mixed-use future. In the City of Peterborough, he carried out public processes to create land use and urban design frameworks for two important sections of the downtown: a waterfront neighbourhood and a new pedestrian and cycling corridor. Andrew provided advice to the City of Mississauga on the development of a Community Improvement Plan (CIP) that directs financial incentives to attract office uses into the Downtown, a vital aspect in creating a vital mixed-use urban centre.
Andrew has been the lead author of many reports and studies addressing some of the most pressing issues confronting Ontario municipalities: growth management, climate change mitigation and adaptation, health-supportive built form, and the promotion of inclusive neighbourhoods.
