DDO Urban Planning Programme
An approach based on resident participation
The City of Dollard-des-Ormeaux has embarked on process to redraft its Urban Planning Programme and associated regulations. The purpose of this redraft is to put in place tools that are favorable to the creation of a dynamic living environment that focuses on the quality of life of its residents. To do this, the City has chosen a participatory and inclusive approach. All the exchanges generated by this consultation process will help to identify the expectations of the population and the initiatives to be favored in order to preserve the exceptional quality of life in the City of Dollard-des-Ormeaux.
What is an Urban Planning Programme?
The Urban Planning Programme, developed in accordance with the Act Respecting Land Use Planning (LAU), is the most important official document concerning local urban planning. The Urban Planning Programme is primarily used to:
Establish a common vision to guide Council’s actions in terms of land use planning over a horizon of 10 to 15 years;
Confirm the desired development vision with investors and developers and raise the population’s awareness with respect to the various development challenges.
Why do we need to redraft the Urban Planning Programme?
The redrafting process is necessary in order to align the regulations with today’s reality, taking into account the emerging needs of residents, the particularities of the territory and the concerns of the council. The redraft will establish the guidelines for the City of Dollard-des-Ormeaux’s spatial and physical organization and guide the development and enhancement of its territory. The new regulations will take into account local characteristics, recent development trends and will update standards according to the needs and aspirations of the greatest number of residents.
