"Village of Chester Secondary Planning Strategy and Land Use By-Law Review"

In January 2020 Municipal Council approved a new Municipal Planning Strategy and Land Use By-Law. These documents regulate land use and development activity for areas outside the Village of Chester. The Village is regulated by a Secondary Planning Strategy and Land Use By-Law. Staff are now undertaking a review of the Village of Chester planning documents. 

The format and structure of the Village of Chester Plan will match the Municipal Plan, however, the policies and regulations created within the village documents will be tailored to address the unique opportunities, issues and challenges within the Village.
