Plan Benefits

An Official Plan is beneficial because it:

  • Balances the interests of individual property owners and wider needs and objectives of the community;

  • Avoids/minimizes land use conflicts;

  • Manages growth/promotes desirable change; and

  • Allows for land use planning decisions to have a great effect on our environment and quality of life.
