The City of Ottawa Transportation Impact Assessment (TIA) Guidelines assist land developers and their transportation consultants with the integration of their proposed developments with the City of Ottawa transportation network. TIA studies support the City’s goal of creating an integrated land use and transportation system as expressed in the Official Plan and the Transportation Master Plan by:
- Evaluating the consistency of a proposed development’s transportation characteristics with City goals and policies;
- Comparing transportation network performance both before and after development; and
- Enabling negotiations between the City and developers about the sharing of costs for transportation system modifications.
The Transportation Impact Assessment Guidelines 2017 [ PDF 3.876 MB ] are to be used for assessing the transportation needs of all development applications submitted to the City of Ottawa.
