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:
