Urban Planning

Moncton’s Urban Planning Department manages the growth and physical form of the city.

The Urban Planning Department oversees land use planning and development, as well as policies and zoning by-laws. This includes deciding on whether land will be designated for residential, community or commercial use. The Department also manages approval processes for development applications. The City has both short-term and long-term plans for growth that reflect the environmental, social and economic needs of the community.
