Area Redevelopment Plans

Area Redevelopment Plans (ARP) are planning documents which set out comprehensive programs of land use policies and other programs that help guide the future of a community.

An ARP is intended to provide a land use planning framework to guide future redevelopment by:

  • describing the objectives of the plan and how they are to be achieved;
  • establishing land uses and development standards for the redevelopment area;
  • preserving or improving land and buildings in the area;
  • rehabilitating buildings in the area;
  • removing buildings from the area;
  • constructing or replacing buildings in the area;
  • establishing, improving or relocating roads, public utilities or other services in the area;
  • facilitating any other development in the area; and
  • any other proposals that council considers necessary
