Land Use Planning and Governance

Why Community Planning is Important

Community planning is a valuable tool for growth and investment. By clarifying where, when, and what type of development can occur, planning provides developers with greater market certainty. For municipalities, planning can ensure that growth is beneficial to the community.

A municipality needs to evaluate the extent to which council develops and uses land use planning policies, practices, and tools to accommodate growth and development in a municipality.

Comprehensive land use planning provides residents and investors a clear indication of the community’s vision, council’s goals and objectives and a legal method for implementing land use controls. Below are useful resources related to community planning.
