Planning and Development plays a central role in the change and development of our community by establishing and administering the Village of Hill Spring land use planning process. Planning and development aims to ensure orderly, economical, and beneficial development, and to maintain and improve the quality of the Village’s physical environment through the application of tools and services under the land use planning process. The scope of planning and development services include:
Land Use and Sustainability Planning Land
Use and Sustainability Planning involves the creation and administration of long-term, community vision plans, such as statutory plans (e.g., Municipal Development Plan, Intermunicipal Development Plans and Area Structure Plans), and the Land Use Bylaw, which together provide direction and the regulatory mechanism for implementing the desired change.
Development Permitting and Subdivision Planning
This includes processing and issuing decisions on development permit and subdivision applications, based on approved plans, the Land Use Bylaw, and other applicable municipal and provincial legislation.
Development Control involves the use of tools such as Development Agreements, inspections, and Land Use Bylaw enforcement mechanisms to achieve desirable development outcomes.
These are services provided to the public for a fee outside the core planning and development services (e.g., Compliance Report or Certificate).
The Village of Hill Spring works closely with the Old Man River Regional Services Commission, as they provide a great deal of processes and functionality to our planning and development services.
