The Land Use Plan will be less specific than a zoning bylaw. It will identify appropriate types of uses for Port lands and water but it will not include specific development criteria such as the location of buildings or how big lots should be.
The Land Use Plan is not the same as a Master Plan either. Where a master plan may look at the entire operations of a Port, the Land Use Plan will focus primarily on land use and related interests. Rather than designate lands for specific commodities, the Land Use Plan will identify a range of uses that would be appropriate to develop on any given parcel.
