Planning and Development

The Planning and Heritage Division is part of the Community Services Department. This division carries out two distinct yet related mandates:


Guides, regulates, and makes recommendations regarding community growth and development in a manner that protects the environment, enhances the quality of life, and promotes a complete community.

The Planning and Heritage Division establishes with Council and the community the policy that sets the direction for future growth and development applications in the City. In reviewing a variety of development applications, the Planning and Heritage Division ensures new development and redevelopment within the City reflects this vision and is consistent with the Provincial Policy.


The City's heritage policies give high priority to implementing plans and initiatives to enhance and revitalize the City's downtown core and waterfront, and emphasizes preservation and celebration of our unique history through architectural conservation and historical interpretation.
