What is Strategic Planning?

Strategic planning is the research and formulation of policies or strategies to implement goals and objectives relating to particular land uses or areas.

Strategic planning also involves monitoring and evaluating the implications of the provisions on land use and development.

This includes strategies that include Land Use, Heritage, Neighbourhood Character, Significant Landscapes, to name a few. Below reflects previous, current and future strategic planning work.
