This plan has three primary components:

  • Planning maps: indicate the areas that the rules in the text and appendices apply.
  • Appendices: contain additional limitations and information like heritage sites, designations and design guidelines.

We recommend you start by using the street listing or map index finding a location on the planning maps.

Read the written text as a whole to understand the plan's common themes and the relationships between chapters.
