NOTE: PROJECT NOW COMPLETE - After almost five years of public consultation, committee meetings, writing and re-writing, the Municipality has prepared final drafts of two new documents: the Municipal Planning Strategy and the Land Use By-law — which will shape the way that our communities grow over the next 20 years. These documents have policies and regulations dealing with the environment, the economy, heritage and community character, housing, and social and physical health.

Zoning is one tool used to achieve the outcomes detailed in the Municipal Planning Strategy. Zones determine what can be built where, and what the approval process is for certain types of development. All areas of the Municipality will see some change to zoning rules.

Municipal Council has now given 1st Reading to the new documents at a meeting held on October 24, 2019. Council has also set a date for a Public Hearing: November 25, 2019, beginning at 7:00 p.m. at Forest Heights Community School. The Public Hearing is the last opportunity to tell us whether or not you agree with the new documents. Written submissions will be accepted for the Public Hearing but must be submitted no later than 4:30 p.m. on November 18, 2019 to the Municipal Clerk (pmyra@chester.ca) or phone 902-275-3554.

Council may vote to adopt the documents following the Public Hearing.
