Power in Planning

The role of the Annapolis County Planning Department is to work with community members to envision new possibilities for our diverse region, while making every attempt to be inclusive, long-term, and visionary in the approach.

We have a goal to create a broad vision for the community; striving to promote a vibrant, active, and compatible atmosphere in Annapolis County. Like you, we want to do everything we can to see our communities succeed.

Area Advisory Committees 

Like many other municipalities, Annapolis County has a Planning Advisory Committee, which is a sub-committee of Council.  However, where a community wishes to have more participation in local planning matters, Council has established specific area advisory committees.  These Area Advisory Committees are comprised of local or area residents and the Councillor of the area.  Their purpose is to advise the Planning Advisory Committee on planning matters that affect their specific area, such as reviewing a rezoning or development agreement application.  The Area Advisory Committee also participates in the periodic review of the area’s municipal planning strategy and land use by-law.

The Committees are as follows:
  • Habitation Area Advisory Committee
  • Upper Clements Area Advisory Committee
  • Cornwallis Park Area Advisory Committee
  • East End Area Advisory Committee
  • Bridgetown Area Advisory Committee
