Urban Planning and Environment

Our Mandate       

We are citizen focused, aiming to create great places through participation of land use and environmental planning. We undertake these tasks at a regional, city-wide and area specific scale, guiding and influencing the city's urban form.

Our work supports Council's 10-year goals by delivering land use and environmental policy, plans, guidelines and programs.
