In addition, all buyers and builders will be required to comply with the Sustainability and Architectural Design Guidelines, which include obtaining third-party sustainability certification of either BuiltGreen Canada Gold,, , or achieving a minimum EnerGuide rating of 80.
Sustainability requirements are compulsory and every home being built in this area of Oxford must achieve certification from a third-party sustainability rating program.
