Official Plan

Official

The City of Charlottetown is developing a new Official Plan – the City’s long-term plan for how land is used and developed in the community. The new Official Plan is an opportunity to address, through planning policy, a number of growth-related challenges facing Charlottetown today and in the future. The purpose of the City’s new Official Plan is to establish the municipality's general land use planning policies and ensure that growth is coordinated and meets the needs of the community.

The new plan will also provide the framework for establishing municipal zoning bylaws, update secondary plans and create design standards and guidelines. Taken together, the new Official Plan will serve as a roadmap for how Charlottetown will grow and develop over the next 20 years.

The engagement for the Charlottetown Official Plan project is now officially underway! We invite you to share your ideas for the future growth and development of the city. You can participate in a number of ways:

    About the Project

    The Charlottetown Official Plan project is an exciting opportunity to define how the City will grow and to create a cohesive vision for the future. An Official Plan is a document that serves as a roadmap to how a city or community will develop over a given period of time. It helps to lay out the development pattern, determining which types of land uses are permitted where, at what intensity, and in what form. The Official Plan also contains policies relating to issues such as the protection of natural areas and resources, the location of housing, public spaces, or community facilities, as well as the need for infrastructure like sewer, water, and roads. The new plan will help Charlottetown flourish by embracing new opportunities, confronting its challenges, and leveraging its assets.

    The current Official Plan was first written in 1999. Municipal planning staff did their best to keep the document current by adopting more recent Secondary Plans, but it is well known that Charlottetown is not the same place it was 20 years ago. There is a need for a new Plan so that it meets the current and future needs of Charlottetown residents.
