Plan Shelburne

Plan Shelburne Update

Plan Shelburne, a review of the Town’s Municipal Planning Strategy, Land Use By-law, and Subdivision By-law , continues in 2017. The Plan will create a vision of how the Town will develop and will include the policies and regulations to help achieve that vision.

Four Public Participation Sessions focusing on the themes of the built environment, the natural environment, economic development, and active transportation & recreation were held in January-March 2016. The next Public Participation series will build on the feedback we received last year and ask specific questions on your vision which will aid in the drafting of the policies and regulations for the new plan. Further community participation will occur later in the year once the draft plan is ready.
