Provincial Planning Regulation Portal

Welcome to the Provincial Planning Regulation home page.
The Provincial Planning Regulation falls under The Planning Act. It reflects the provincial government’s interest in land and resource use and sustainable development, and provides policy direction for a comprehensive, integrated and coordinated approach to land use planning. It also serves as a guide to planning authorities in preparing, reviewing and amending development plans and regional strategies.
This regulation replaces the former Provincial Land Use Policies regulation (184/94). It contains three distinct parts: provincial land use policies, development plan requirements and livestock operation requirements.
