Our Avalon – a plan for the Northeast Avalon Region

Development of the Northeast Avalon Region (NEAR) regional plan is now underway. The Province of Newfoundland and Labrador and 15 municipalities are participating in the process. We want you to be a part of it.

Regional planning is the process of efficient zoning for land uses and related infrastructure within an area that typically extends beyond the boundaries of a single municipality. An effective regional plan will incorporate broad decisions concerning the direction of growth within the area to which it applies and the major initiatives to be pursued to accommodate and encourage that growth. It also provides a framework for municipal plans prepared by the municipalities that make up the region to coordinate their land use policies.
