2.3.2 Land Use

In this section, land use refers to more than the human activities that take place on the land.  It looks at environmental protection, parcel layout, aesthetics and archaeological interest as well, all of which could affect the design or even the feasibility of the subdivision application.  Pursuant to Section 86 of the Land Title Act, approving officers need to balance a wide variety of factors to make sure the proposed subdivision does not unreasonably affect the land and its adjacent properties.
