Urban Planning Plan (UPP)
A particular urban planning program is a document for long-term and more detailed planning of a territory for which significant changes are anticipated, within a horizon of approximately 20 years. It is a legal tool stemming from the Planning and Urbanism Act to which urban planning regulations must comply.
A particular urban planning program (PPU) is used notably to:
- Define the vision, directions, and development objectives.
- Program municipal interventions to address planning issues and objectives.
- Frame interventions on private property (regulatory framework) to guide development towards a common vision.
Accepted suggestions received from the public will be integrated into the proposed plan, followed by a public consultation scheduled for the fall of 2023.
As part of this Special Urban Plan, a consultation stage will begin soon. Information will be available soon on this site.
