Citywide and Intermunicipal Plans
Community and Neighbourhood Plans
Planning at the neighbourhood level is split into two types of statutory plans: an Area Redevelopment Plan (ARP) and an Area Structure Plan (ASP). Both types of plans provide guidance on land use, infrastructure, transportation and the environment. Neighbourhood plans must also be consistent with higher level plans such as the MDP.
An Area Redevelopment Plan provides a framework for the redevelopment of an existing neighbourhood within the City.
An Area Structure Plan provides a framework for the development of a new (greenfield) area of the City.
