Development of Land

The Municipality of Argyle has made a commitment to become a more sustainable community. The first step down this path was to approve an Integrated Community Sustainability Plan in March 2010. The next step is to update the municipality’s planning documents.

Over the last two years the Municipal Planning Strategy (MPS) and Land Use By-Law (LUB) have been under review by the Planning Advisory Committee (PAC). This committee provides advice to Council on land use planning matters. Both citizen representatives and Councillors sit on this committee.

What kind of community do you want for your children and grandchildren? The Planning Advisory Committee has been appointed by Council as the committee to oversee this planning process. All PAC meetings are open to the public and held on the last Thursday of the month at 7:00pm in the Council chambers of the municipal building in Tusket. Staff of the Yarmouth-Argyle-Barrington District Planning Commission facilitate the planning process and can be contacted at (902)648-3166 for further information.

The Municipal Planning Strategy is designed to address, but is not limited to, the following:

  1. future land use within the municipality,
  2. The manner of, and proposals for, future development in the municipality,
  3. co-ordination of land use, future growth patterns, and other infrastructure with adjacent municipalities if there is no inter-municipal development plan, with respect to those matters in those municipalities,
  4. provision of required transportation systems, either generally or specifically, within the municipality and in relation to adjacent municipalities, and
  5. provision of municipal services and facilities either generally or specifically.

The Land Use Bylaw provides information and guidance for development and subdivisions within the Municipality.

Amendments to zonings and to the Land Use Bylaw as well as all development and subdivisions within the Municipality are looked after by the Planning and Development Department.
