Community planning, land use and development

Working together for vibrant and sustainable communities.

Land use planning helps to create vibrant and sustainable communities by providing a framework to managing development and growth. All communities in New Brunswick are required to have a land use plan that provides a vision and structure. Land use planning determines how property owners can use and develop their land, including approving development, and subdividing land.
