The Canadian Institute of Planners lends a definition of land use planning: it is the scientific, aesthetic, and orderly disposition of land, resources, facilities and services. It secures the physical, economic and social efficiency, and health and well-being of urban and rural communities.
Through land use planning, we strive to resolve the many, and often conflicting, pressures on Bruderheim's land and resources.
Below is a list of useful planning documents:
Legislation & Policy
Bruderheim's Municipal Development Plan (15-2013) has been prepared as a framework to fulfill community goals, enhance community strengths, and address the challenges and issues relating to the future use and development of land. The plan informs the general public, private developers, and landowners of the overall strategy for development in the community.
Bruderheim's Land Use Bylaw divides the town into land use districts, provides regulations for each district and outlines procedures for development of any parcel within the town limits of Bruderheim. PLEASE NOTE THAT BRUDERHEIM'S LAND USE BYLAW HAS BEEN UPDATED. SOME DETAILS RELATED TO PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT MAY HAVE CHANGED. PLEASE CONTACT THE TOWN OFFICE WITH ANY QUESTIONS.
Area Structure Plans are an important part of the planning process that provides a framework for the subsequent subdivision and development of land. The purpose of this Policy is to ensure that Council's land use policies, as outlined in the Town's Strategic Plan (Vision 2035) and the Municipal Development Plan, are implemented in Area Structure Plans and Area Structure Plan amendments adopted by Council.
Vision 2035 is a long-term Strategic Plan for the Town of Bruderheim, which will guide the community in planning for the future. As such, it will act as the over-arching or "umbrella" document for our municipality's other planning documents.
Tax Free for Three Policy
Tax Free for Three is a tax incentive policy designed to attract new business, industry, and residents to our Town by offering tax breaks for their first three years after development.
