Area Plans

Area Structure Plans

An area structure plan is a long range planning document that outlines how growth and development will take place over a large area of Town, typically several quarter sections in size. These plans contain policies that guide future development, ensuring that it occurs in an orderly and efficient manner. They identify major land uses, roadways, infrastructure, and parks and trail systems for the specified area. Area structure plans are prepared by the Town and are approved by Council as a bylaw, making them statutory planning documents.
