Planning Overlays

Planning overlays are regulatory tools used in urban planning to manage specific geographic areas based on unique environmental, historical, or infrastructural characteristics. These overlays impose additional controls and guidelines on top of the base zoning to address issues such as flood risk, heritage conservation, environmental protection, and landscape preservation. They ensure that developments within these areas are conducted in a manner that mitigates risks, protects significant features, and maintains the overall character and sustainability of the community. By applying tailored requirements, planning overlays help balance development needs with the protection of vital community assets and natural resources.
