Community sustainability, particularly the key aspects of socio-cultural components seem to be less considered in the current planning and development in today’s context. This has created issues in our communities which impacts the overall achievement of the sustainability tasks. In this context, urban design can play a major role for the creation of sustainable communities while addressing the socio-cultural interests’ in-addition to the environmental sustainability concerns. This paper will provide an overview of the significant issues of sustainability in Canadian sub-urban communities and explore the urban design strategies used to deal with community sustainability issues focusing the town of Clarington in Ontario as a case study.
