Centre Plan Update – March 2018
Thanks for your input and ongoing support for the Centre Plan.
The draft Package A Land Use By-law (LUB) and Secondary Municipal Planning Strategy (SMPS) documents have now been released and are ready for your review. As the next step in the adoption process Package A contains the first set of draft land use policies and regulations which focus on areas designated as Centres, Corridors, Higher Order Residential and Future Growth Nodes. Package A deals with standards for development, set backs, transitions, built-form and creating complete communities.
