Land Use Planning & Design

EcoPlan offers a wide range of land use planning and design expertise and experience. We have used our community-based, participatory approach with municipalities, regional districts, and First Nations on a wide range of planning and design initiatives, including:

• Regional Growth Strategies
• Official Community Plans
• Neighbourhood Plans
• Design Guidelines and Site Plans
• Feasibility Studies
• Policy Development and Review

With in-house GIS, urban design, policy development, and community engagement capacity, EcoPlan can develop well-structured, user-friendly plans, strategies, and design concepts that meet the needs and objectives of project partners and stakeholders.
