Ville de Laval issued the "Residential buildings architectural guide" to improve the quality of the built environment. This guide is based on 5 landscaping principles that every residential project should meet:
Favour exterior cladding materials in masonry.
Regulate the height of the outer wall according to the centre of the street.
Lower the threshold at the main entrance.
Lower the height of balconies/terraces in the back yard.
Submit some buildings to the procedure applicable to integrated projects.
