SCPD Development Plan 2016

In May 2002, the Planning District Board completed the Planning District Development Plan Background Assessment and Inventory Report. The Background Report was divided into ten sections.
It assessed community resources in terms of population and settlement characteristics, property ownership patterns, urban community land use characteristics, infrastructure services, heritage and cultural resources, and their implications upon the preparation of a planning strategy.
The natural and environmental resources were assessed in terms of agricultural soil capability, intensive livestock operation inventory, surface and sub-surface water resources, aggregate deposits, natural features including vegetation characteristics, wildlife habitat areas and their associated implications on the preparation of the Development Plan.

The South Central Development Plan came into effect with By-Law 3-2003 with the subsequent amendments to the By-Law as listed below.
